Lincoln striker Callum Morton ponders West Brom future

West Brom striker Callum Morton says he wants regular football next season.

The 22-year-old is currently enjoying a temporary spell with Lincoln having previously shone for Northampton during the 2019/20 campaign.

Morton says he will talk to the club about his future at the end of the current campaign.

“That's a conversation for the summer with the relevant people so we can see where I am at with my football," he told the Express & Star.

“It also depends how well I do at Lincoln between now and the end of the season because if I do as well as I did last season, the Championship would be the next natural progression.

“But I wouldn't be content with being another number in a match day squad so I think if me playing regular minutes would mean going out on loan again, then it would be a sensible option to take.

“Getting chucked into a changing room full of professionals of different ages, backgrounds and lifestyles has definitely been an eye-opener for me.

“You see a lot of young players like yourself but then you see older players with kids and families.

“Then in terms of the style of play at clubs, there is a shift between West Brom, Northampton and Lincoln.

“They all play in a different way and experiencing that helps you adapt to different challenges and situations.

“You want to have that under your belt because there could be different managers coming in whatever club you are at so knowing how to play in different styles is ideal."
