Midfielder Morrell keen to extend loan stay

27 December 2017

Midfielder Joe Morrell hopes his loan stay from Bristol City will continue until the end of the season.

The Wales Under-21 moved to the LCI Rail Stadium at the start of the season on a deal until the New Year and has made 19 appearances in all competitions for the Robins.

“I want to stay and I think that will happen,” said Morrell.

“It’s a set-up that I am now familiar with. I know the boys, I know the gaffer and I don’t see any reason to change that.

“I can stay here and get some games and then go back to Bristol City next season.

“My focus is on Cheltenham and I am really happy playing here.

“I have learnt more here in half a year than I have in four years playing reserve team football at Bristol City, which is what it is about,” he added.

“I am still young and I am picking up things all the time, that is why I am keen to stay.

“I’ve never played senior football before so coming to this level was a good move for me.

“Questions have been asked of me; my career will be about answering those questions.

“Hopefully I have done a bit of that and there is more to come from me, that is the reason why I want to stay at Cheltenham and show more.”
