The 19-year-old is currently on loan at League Two side Forest Green but was back in Ipswich today, watching the Blues’ Under 23s in their 2-0 victory over Charlton.

His deal was due to expire this summer but the teenager is delighted to have extended his stay at Portman Road, with the club also holding an option to extend his deal by a further 12 months.

“I’m really happy to have the contract sorted,” Morris said.

“This club means a lot to me and I’m looking forward to getting back here and playing some football.”

Morris, who has made five appearances for the Blues, has played eight times for Forest Green this season, scoring once.

“I had a slow start with Forest Green but my loan spell there has been improving,” he added.

“Hopefully I can get some more games under my belt and add a few goals because I’ve been learning a lot during my time with them.”
