Carvalhal said: “We needed a proper left-back who knows the Championship very well. Morgan is 23-years -old. He is a player we want for the future not just the present and I think we achieve a good left back for the age and quality of the player. He is very balanced in defence and attack.”

Fox, cup-tied for yesterday’s 3-0 loss to Middlesbrough, will be vying with Daniel Pudil for the full-back role.

“We have good expectations about Morgan for the future,” said Carvalhal. “I saw him in some games captain Charlton which means that he also has a strong personality and we like this.”
