“Everything is going good and I’m very confident that I’ll be available for our pre-season and that to me is good news,” Morris is quoted as saying by KickOff.com.

“I’m working extremely hard in the gym to get back to full fitness. I’m also aware not to rush things but I’m eager to be part of our pre-season campaign,” he concluded.
