Morrison departs Blues

As revealed by We Are Birmingham earlier, Blues have this afternoon confirmed that they have been unable to agree a deal with skipper Michael Morrison. The defender will now depart the club as a free-agent, following the expiry of his contract yesterday.

The Suffolk-born centre-back joined the club on 31 October 2014, on a two-month emergency loan from fellow championship side, Charlton Athletic, following a dismal 0-8 home defeat to Bournemouth. The loan was made permanent in the following January, and Morrison was later appointed as team captain of the club, making 183 appearances across all competitions during his tenure at the club.

A fan favourite at the club, the no-nonsense defender was a mainstay throughout his five seasons at the club, rarely missing out through injury.

Morrison scored a personal-high of 7 goals last season across 44 appearances for the club, however was unable to agree new terms with the club. We believe that Morrison wanted two extra years, however he was only offered one year by the club.

Morrison is the seventh player to depart St. Andrews this summer, following the departures of Greg Stewart, Beryly Lubala, Cheikh N’doye, Tomasz Kuszczak, Jota and Che Adams.

We wish Michael the very best for the future, whatever it may hold.
