He is represented by DRN Sports, of Hargreaves Street in Burnley, and consultant Kiko Rodriguez said: “We’re delighted to get Morgan a move to Coventry.

“He was released by Blackburn, and was at Leicester.

“But we worked with his parents very closely and got him down to Coventry for trials, and they saw his potential and offered him a two-year scholarship.

“He’s very quick and a good finisher, and we hope he can go right through the system there now to the first team.”
