Barnsley have been offered hope in their pursuit of Carlton Morris, with Norwich City recalling him from his loan spell at MK Dons with a view to moving him on permanently.
Russell Martin confirms that striker Carlton Morris has been recalled from his loan by Norwich City, with a view to completing a permanent move away from Carrow Road.

As quoted by the Yorkshire Post, Ismael said earlier this month: “Carlton Morris is a player on a list who we are looking at. He is a very good player with a good profile for me, for the system and for the Championship. But he is one name among many.
“We have to see and, when something is ready to sign and to say, we will do it.”
Morris has played on 18 occasions for MK Dons this season in League One, scoring three goals and registering one assist. That’s an improvement from the 25-year-old’s stats on loan last season, when he struck only twice for the Dons in the league.
Martin has now confirmed his departure, which opens the door for Barnsley to swoop to sign him.
Should the Tykes get Morris on board, he will be linking up with a squad sitting ninth in the Championship table heading into the FA Cup weekend.
Only three points separate them and the play-off places.
Things look good for Barnsley here.
With Norwich looking to move him on permanently, everything begins to point to Oakwell and Ismael getting his man.
It’ll be good for Barnsley to have a positive window too.
They are moving in the right direction this season and the manager deserves backing.
