Joe Morrell: On-loan midfielder hopes to extend spell with Cheltenham Town

Cheltenham Town’s Joe Morrell has expressed his desire to remain with The Robins following the end of his short-term loan, due to expire in January.

The 20-year-old has impressed since signing from Bristol City in the summer, making his English Football League debut in Cheltenham’s 1-0 defeat at home to Stevenage in September.

A first league goal, a few man-of-the-match performances and a Wales Under-21 call up later, and Morrell has been rewarded with a new contract with his parent club.

However, Morrell hopes to finish his 2017-18 campaign at Whaddon Road.

“I haven’t really thought about anything after January yet, I take it training session by training session and that’s the way I’ve always done it,” Morrell told Park Life Sport.

“I’m really happy here at Cheltenham, it’s exactly what I needed to have the opportunity to play games and Cheltenham have given me that so I think if it comes to January and there’s a decision to be made about my future then I don’t think it’ll be too difficult.”

Cheltenham host Cambridge United this weekend where they’ll hope to add to their impressive form of four home wins in their last six.
