Morrison signs from Cambridge

Morrison signs from Cambridge

Nigel Pearson has made his first signing as Leicester manager, signing Michael Morrison from Cambridge United.

The deal will be completed tomorrow, but as Cambridge director George Rolls told cambridgeunited.co.uk the deal was too good for the club to refuse, and also something that they couldn't deny Morrison 'It's a good deal for the club and a cracking move for Michael.
'An opportunity like this doesn't come along every day and it wouldn't be right to stand in his way, especially after he did right by us in February by signing a new contract.
'He could have kept his options open and walked away this summer for a fee potentially set by a tribunal, but he signed a new deal with us and I felt honour-bound to let him talk to Leicester City.
'We've agreed a good deal with Leicester and we wish Michael well.
'He's still only 20 and hopefully he will continue to carve out an exciting career.'

The amount we paid will not be disclosed at our request, and was decided by a tribunal, but does involve sell on clauses and so on.

Morrison is the youngest player to ever represent Cambridge, and has been voted their Young Player of the Year for the past three-years. He has also trained with Everton, Preston, Newcastle, Watford and Chelsea in this time.
