Manager Paul Tisdale has confirmed that striker Clinton Morrison will remain at St James Park until the end of the season.

The former Republic of Ireland international, and Crystal Palace and Birmingham forward moved to us on non contract terms initially at the end of November, and made his debut coming off the bench against Burton Albion.

So far since coming in he has made six appearances, and the gaffer told the Official Site.

‘Clinton will stay with us until the end of the season. It’s another player who is adding competition for places and I think he has done very well and hopefully he will continue to add for the rest of the season.’

Tisdale goes on to say that he’s shown himself to be a good player, and with him we have the added value of him being able to offer advice and help bring on our younger forwards in their development.

‘Most importantly I sign players with the view of someone that can play in the team. Whether they do or not is down to selection, but they are signed to play and be selected.’
