Medical underway: Luton Town agree to sign international from Bristol City - Exclusive
Bristol City midfielder Joe Morrell is undergoing a medical at Luton Town ahead of a permanent transfer, Football Insider understands.
The 23-year-old has not featured at all for the Robins since the start of the 2020/21 season and is now set to move across the Championship to join Nathan Jones’ men.
A source at Kenilworth Road has told Football Insider that the two clubs have agreed transfer terms and that the Wales star is undergoing a medical after he returned from international duty.
Morrell played the full 90 minutes for Wales against the Republic of Ireland on Sunday but has been allowed to leave the squad by Ryan Giggs as he is suspended for Wednesday’s clash with Bulgaria.
It is understood the Ipswich-born central midfielder is having his medical with Luton ahead of a permanent switch between the two Championship sides.
A graduate of the Bristol City academy, Morrell has played just six times for the club but has picked up first-team experience during loan spells with Cheltenham Town and Lincoln City.
