Morris relishing the chance at TRFC

28 January 2019

Kieron Morris is relishing the prospect of pulling on a Tranmere Rovers shirt after the midfielder signed on loan until the end of the season from Sky Bet League One side Walsall.

The 24-year-old, who has made over 140 appearances for the Saddlers since coming through their youth system, becomes the fifth new face to arrive on the Wirral in the January transfer window.

Morris joins fellow new signings, David Perkins, Ishmael Miller, Harvey Gilmour and Ben Pringle in linking up at Prenton Park.

And once he heard of TRFC’s interest, Morris jumped at the chance to join Rovers, and he is looking forward to playing in front of the SWA as Micky Mellon’s men look to boost their promotion hopes as the season heads into its closing few months.

Morris said: “The manager rang me a couple of weeks back and said that he was interested in signing me and they’d been watching me for a long time and he just wanted me to come, so I had a think about it and I’m here.

“I know it’s a big Club with big ambitions, I knew from the fanbase and everything else that it is a massive Club and I knew I’d like to come here.

“Now I’m playing for Tranmere I just want to get a lot of games.”

Hereford-born Morris, who played against Tranmere in a Carabao Cup win for Walsall at Prenton Park last August, admitted that the opportunity to sign for Rovers was a “no brainer" - with the Club on the cusp of the Sky Bet League Two Play-Offs, and a promotion is the aim during his stay. 

He added: “I’ve got plenty of experience in the league and playing in League Two, it is a good league and sort of similar to League One and I’m looking to get started.

“Tranmere is a big Club, it is tight this league and we have a great chance to get in the Play-Offs and get promotion.

“It is a great opportunity to get promoted so it was a no brainer.”
