MOR­RI­SON’S ON THE SHOP­PING LIST

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS -

GARY Rowett has re­vealed Birm­ing­ham are look­ing to make a per­ma­nent move for Charl­ton’s Michael Mor­ri­son when his loan ex­pires in Jan­uary.

The 26-year-old has made a big im­pact since ar­riv­ing at St An­drews at the end of Oc­to­ber as Rowett’s first sign­ing as man­ager.

After a string of com­mand­ing per­for­mances at the heart of the Blues’ back four, Rowett ad­mits Mor­ri­son would be a per­fect fit for Blues.

“We are in dis­cus­sions with Charl­ton just to see if it is some­thing they would con­sider in Jan­uary,” he said.

“Whether they would con­sider ex­tend­ing the loan un­til the end of the sea­son or whether they would con­sider let­ting us take him per­ma­nently.

“Un­til we are clear on what they want to do it’s a sort of ir­rel­e­vant con­ver­sa­tion.

“But what we have made clear to Michael is we would like to keep him. He has done bril­liantly for us.

“He is some­one that a club like us should be look­ing at try­ing to keep for as long as we pos­si­bly can be­cause he’s the right age, he’s got the right ex­pe­ri­ence, he’s got the right char­ac­ter­is­tics that we like and I think he has been ex­cel­lent so far.”
