Following their relegation from the Championship to League One, Barnsley’s hierarchy did not rule out the sales of some of their top players, but some still remain in the form of Callum Styles and Michal Helik.

The same cannot be said for Morris though, who has opted to make the move back to the second tier of English football and he increases the firepower at Luton, who finished in the play-off places last season before being defeated in the semi-finals by Huddersfield Town.
Following the completion of his move to Luton, Morris has issued a parting message to Barnsley supporters via the club’s official website.
“I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved with Barnsley Football Club in welcoming me and making my time there so amazing,” Morris said.
“I loved my journey with the Club and the return of fans after Covid was an experience I’ll never forget.
“Barnsley FC will always have a place in my heart and leaving was a decision I did not take lightly.
“Thank you again, and I wish you all nothing but the best going forward.”
Having scored 14 times for Barnsley in the Championship over a total of 53 outings, Morris has a decent-enough scoring record at second tier level, with his all-round game making him a commodity.
