Fleetwood Town are delighted to announce Shayden Morris has signed his first professional contract with the club.

The 18-year-old has put pen-to-paper on a deal which will keep him at Highbury until the summer of 2021, with the club holding an option for an extra year in the youngster’s contract.

Morris joined the Cod Army's youth academy from Southend United two years ago and made his first team debut in Town’s EFL Trophy penalty shoot-out win against Liverpool in September.

London born, Morris has impressed with a number of eye-catching pacey performances on the wing for both the club’s Under 18s and Development Squad.

Academy manager Ciaran Donnelly said: “We are delighted to see Shayden’s hard work rewarded with a professional contract at the club.

“He is a great lad who caught the eye from the very first time we saw him on trial with his pace. Shayden knows he has a lot a work ahead of him but now has a fantastic opportunity to step-up and join the club’s professional ranks.

“We all look forward to watching him grow and continue to improve around the club’s professionals and hopefully will see him make the progression through to the first team in the future."
