Midfielder Kieron Morris became a Tranmere Rovers player when he made the loan switch from League One Walsall in the January transfer window.

Hereford-born Morris began his playing career after coming through the academy ranks at his parent club having previously been at Hereford United’s Centre of Excellence as a youngster.

After earning a professional contract at the Bescot Stadium, he made his Walsall debut in a League Cup defeat away to then-Premier League side Stoke City in August 2013, aged 19.

Also spending time at non-league clubs Worcester City and Leamington to aid his football development, Morris would make his league debut for Walsall in a 1-1 draw at Brunton Park back in April 2014.

A few months earlier, Morris had gone on trial with Icelandic side IBV.

The following campaign saw him score his first goal for Walsall in a League Cup win at Southend United in August 2014.

Morris would go on to make 24 appearances spread across two clubs that season, with the player loaned out to National League side Wrexham in January 2015.

Morris played nine times during a three-month stay at the North Wales outfit, notably scoring the winner in a 1-0 derby victory over local-rivals Chester before adding another to his tally in a 4-1 win at Altrincham two games later.

He returned to Walsall after his loan at the Racecourse Ground expired in April 2015 and would finish the season well, becoming a regular in the first-team where he scored two goals against Crawley Town and Swindon Town.

In the 2015/16 campaign, Morris found himself a key member of Walsall’s side, making 42 appearances along the way, as the Saddlers reached the League One Play-Offs.

Scoring three goals, coming as pivotal strikes against Gillingham, Swindon and Shrewsbury Town with the club battling towards the summit of the third-tier, which ended in a defeat to Barnsley over eventual promotion-winners Barnsley over two legs.

Morris would continue to be a mainstay in Walsall’s midfield, featuring in 37 and 48 games over the next two seasons at the West Midlands club.

This term, the 24-year-old has made 26 appearances in all competitions for Dean Keates’ men, with his last coming in an FA Cup defeat at Bolton Wanderers in early January.

Morris links up with Micky Mellon’s Rovers side until the end of the current League Two season, which will see him play in the fourth-tier for the first time.
