Fleetwood Town have signed Blackburn Rovers utility man Josh Morris on a one-month loan deal.

Morris, who can ply his trade at left-back or on the left side of midfield, made five appearances for his parent club at the beginning of the current campaign before spending a month on loan at Carlisle.

Cod Army manager Graham Alexander told the club's official website: "Josh is a young man who has playing in the Blackburn Rovers first team earlier this season.

"He has been out on loan before and he can play at left-back. We see him more as a left midfield player because he has very good adapting attributes.

"He has got a very good left foot. Josh is quick and he is good on the ball. He is a great addition to the squad and after losing Jeff Hughes for a period of time through injury, we are a little bit unbalanced on that left hand side.

"We don't have a natural left-footer who can play in that position. That is why we have brought in Josh and he will help us on that side."

Morris is available for Town's clash with Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday night.
