The Iron completed the signing of Bradford City midfielder Josh Morris on a free transfer in June 2016.

He penned a three-year contract and reunited with United manager Graham Alexander, who he spent time with at Fleetwood Town during two separate loan spells. 

As well as playing on the left side and centre of midfield, he is also capable of playing at left-back. 

Born in Preston, Morris began his career with Blackburn Rovers. He made 20 league appearances for them before departing on a permanent basis last summer. 

While with the Ewood Park club, he enjoyed loan spells with Yeovil Town, Rotherham United, Carlisle United and latterly Fleetwood, for whom he made 59 league appearances and scored 10 times under Alexander. 

A permanent switch to Bradford City followed last summer, and the former England U20 international scored one goal in 16 appearances while at Valley Parade. 

His first campaign for the Iron turned out to massively successful, netting 20 goals in all competitions and assisting on no fewer than 17 occasions. He was named in the PFA League One Team of the Year, the EFL Team of the Year and won the Sky Bet League One Player of the Month award in both August and September.
