Morrison in soon?

We have been waiting for a second central defender to sign but it looks as if Michael Morrison will be coming from Sheffield Wednesday soon: Morrison

The fee is reported to be £250k which shows once again that the board are prepared to spend some money, albeit at levels appropriate for League 1. There will be a challenge for all the new players to meld together as a team, but I would rather face that challenge than be short of players in key positions.

One of the strengths of the versatile 23-year old is that he can play at right back as well as centre back which is an area in which we need cover.

His Wikipedia entry is here: Morrison

Reports from Sheffield indicate a subdued reaction from Owls fans. However, this does not mean that he is useless. Rather it seems that his face doesn't fit as far as Gary Megson is concerned: Owls

Take a look at the comments from Leicester fans (bear in mind a Championship team) - for whom he made 76 appearances in 2 and a half years, before he left in Jan.

Massively positive, and they wish they never sold him.
