Talks stall over new Morris deal

Lee Morris

Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido has said the club are a long way from agreeing a new deal with Lee Morris.

Striker Morris, 29, played a key role in helping the Brewers win promotion to the Football League last season.

But Peschisolido, who is close to signing Birmingham winger Robin Shroot, 20, on a season-long loan, told BBC Radio Derby the club will not panic.

"We were miles apart with regard to contract negotiations, so at the minute it's on hold," Peschisolido said.

"We are looking more in other positions than for front men because we've got Robin Shroot from Birmingham, who I think will be a great acquisition up front."

Shroot, who is a Northern Ireland under-21 international, has agreed a deal with the Blue Square Premier champions and is expected to complete his move to the Pirelli Stadium by the end of June.

"He's got an eye for goal and he's a very skilful player," Peschisolido said. "I am delighted to hopefully get him on board with us for next season."
