Forward pens one-year deal as he prepares for return following lengthy spell on sidelines
Ben Morris has signed a new contract at Town.
The 21-year-old striker has penned a one-year deal at Portman Road, with the Club having the option to extend it for a further 12 months.
The Academy graduate made his first-team debut in August 2017 when he came on as a second-half substitute against Crystal Palace in the League Cup and provided an assist as the Blues fell to a 2-1 defeat at Selhurst Park.
Following a loan spell at Forest Green Rovers in the first half of the 2018/19 season, two cruciate ligament injuries put his progress on hold but now he’s ready to stake his claim for a place in Paul Cook’s squad for the campaign ahead.
“I've had a tough two years with the injuries so I'm really happy to have this opportunity," Ben told the Club website.
“I'm back from injury now and I'm ready to go in pre-season. My return date pretty much coincided with the end of last season, so I couldn't train with the lads but it gave me more time to prepare.
“It's a chance for me to prove myself again and I want to be involved and play games.
“I just want to play football, that's it!”
