Life has been going well for Morris who has just returned from England U19 duty this week.

The former High Tunstall College of Science pupil has represented England at all age levels up to U19 including as captain.

Morris made his competitive debut for Boro as a 16-year-old, as a substitute in an FA Cup tie against Hastings United in January 2013, when Tony Mowbray was boss.

His only appearance in a Boro shirt last season came against Yeovil on the final day of the season.

The 18-year-old spent pre-season with the Boro squad in Marbella and was an unused substitute for the 1-1 draw against Blackpool in September.

But now he has linked up with former Boro striker Hasselbaink who has taken charge of the Brewers following Gary Rowett’s departure to Birmingham

Morris will wear the number 21 shirt at the Pirelli Stadium.
