Coventry City's newest recruit Bryn Morris is eager to impress manager Tony Mowbray once again after working with him during his time at Middlesbrough.

Morris made his debut for Boro under Mowbray at just the age of 16, playing in a 4-1 win against Hastings in the FA Cup back in January 2013.

The England Under-19 international is delighted to be reunited with his former manager and wants to hit the ground running after recovering from injury.

"I've had a frustrating time with my injury lately so I'm just glad to get back focussing on the football and I'm delighted to be here," Morris said.

"It was a stress fracture on my back probably most frustrating injury I've had, but that's behind me and I can't wait to get started.

"When I was 16, the manager had the faith in me then so I'm glad to be back working with him.

"He gave me my debut for Middlesbrough in the FA Cup and I'm really looking forward to getting started, I can't wait."

Comfortable at the back or in midfield, Morris emerged as an exciting loanee for Burton Albion last season.

He has also won caps at England Under-16, 17, 18 and 19 level, captaining each team. The 19-year old is keen to build on his experiences with the Three Lions and his loan spell with the Brewers by breaking into the Sky Blues side this season.

He continued: "Playing for England gives you confidence and playing with the best players helps to improve you.

"I was at Burton for a month and while I didn't play in my favoured position I still enjoyed the experience. I played on the wing but I prefer a central role and like to go box-to-box. Either way, I'll play where I'm told to, but the way Tony Mowbray spoke to me about it I'm really excited to kick on. I want to try and make my claim here and continue improving."
