Forest Green sign Salford City striker in last-gasp transfer deadline deal


In a last-gasp transfer deadline day deal, Forest Green have signed striker Callum Morton on a season-long loan from Salford City.

The Torquay-born 23-year-old has had spells at the likes of Fleetwood Town, Lincoln City and Peterborough United – although his most memorable stint came at Northampton Town.

At the backend of the 2019/20 season, Morton played 12 times for the Cobblers, scoring eight goals as he helped the side to promotion from League Two. He scored three goals in their play-off campaign, including two against Cheltenham Town in the semi-final second leg.

The energetic striker came through the ranks at West Brom before joining Fleetwood in 2021, where he contributed 17 goals in 46 appearances. 

Salford snapped him up back in January – and he’s gone on to play 16 times for the Ammies.

After joining the club, Morton said: “Im delighted to join the club for the season. I can’t wait to get back on the pitch and hopefully scoring lots of goals.”

David Horseman added: “Callum is a player who gives us completely different attributes to what we currently have in the frontline.

“He is quick, energetic and can stretch the opposition backline.”
