The midfielder was born in February 2000 and is 21-years-old.

The Bury-born player made his Rochdale debut in October 2016 against Notts County in the EFL Trophy.

He was an unused substitute against Wanderers when Ian Evatt's side won 3-0 in the Papa John's Trophy at the start of November.

Morley will be out of contract at Rochdale this summer.
