Kieron Morris has signed a new two-year deal at Walsall, after making a big impression since returning from Wrexham last month, the club have confirmed.
The 20-year-old has made 13 appearances for the Saddlers and has started every game of the club’s current seven game unbeaten run, scoring two goals.
The new deal represents a huge turnaround for the Hereford-born midfielder, who had until recently found himself in the fringes of the first team.
The loan spell at Wrexham provided him a change of fortune as he scored four goals in as many appearances in that period at The Racecourse Road, he also featured in the Dragons’ FA Trophy defeat against North Ferriby United.
He follows the 17-year-old left back Rico Henry as the second Academy graduate to pen a new deal.
Morris had a taste of first-team football with the Saddlers earlier in the season, scoring a late winning goal in the Capital One Cup tie against Southend United.
Morris is one of seven academy graduates to make a senior appearance this season.
