Done deal: West Brom finalise new contract for centre-forward

West Brom have confirmed that striker Callum Morton has signed a new four-year contract at the club.

West Brom News exclusively revealed six weeks ago that Albion had started talks with the 20-year-old forward following an impressive loan spell at Northampton Town last season which saw him score eight goals in 12 appearances and secure promotion to League One.

Morton has since agreed fresh terms at The Hawthorns and, as confirmed on West Brom’s official Twitter account, has been sent out on loan to Lincoln City, alongside goalkeeper Alex Palmer, where they will link up with former Baggies coach Michael Appleton.

Morton was on fire at Sixfields last season.

The former Yeovil striker joined Northampton on loan in January and went on to score crucial goals in their successful promotion campaign.

One of those goals came at Wembley when the Cobblers won 4-0 against Exeter City in the League Two play-off final.

Morton has now been handed the chance to test himself at a higher level in the third-tier with Lincoln, who finished 16th last season.

It remains to be seen whether he and Palmer will be available to play for Lincoln on Saturday when they play against Crewe Alexandra in the Carabao Cup but West Brom won’t have sent Morton out on loan to Lincoln if they knew he wasn’t going to play much football.

If he’s not available this weekend, then you can bet he will be at least in the running to start against Scunthorpe in the EFL Trophy next Tuesday.

In other West Brom news, this is how Albion will owe West Ham an extra £2million for Grady Diangana.
