Rotherham United have announced that Norwich City have recalled Carlton Morris from his loan spell with the club, with the Premier League outfit confirming that the midfielder has now joined the Millers’ third-tier rivals MK Dons on a temporary basis.
Morris, who previously spent a spell on-loan with Rotherham during the 2016/17 season, rejoined the club on loan until the end of the season during the summer transfer window.
But despite making a total of 28 appearances in all competitions for Paul Warne’s side, scoring four goals, Morris has now seen his spell with the Millers brought to a premature end.
Instead, the 24-year-old is now set to link up with MK Dons – who are managed by Norwich legend Russell Marton – until the end of the campaign.
Morris leaves Rotherham with the club currently second in the League One table, one point clear of the play-off places, and joins an MK Dons side who are 20th in the third-tier, three points clear of the relegation zone.
I have to say this feels rather like Norwich are doing one of their old players a favour by letting Martin have Morris here.
The midfielder certainly didn’t seem to be short of game time at Rotherham, and you would have thought that the Canaries would have preferred for him to be involved in the fight for promotion they are enjoying, rather than the battle for survival that MK Dons are currently enduring.
You have to feel slightly sorry for Rotherham here as a result, and it will be interesting to see how this move impacts the fortunes of these two sides during the rest of the season.
