Steve Morison
Morison's career is at a crossroads after being forced out of Leeds United.

Millwall loanee Steve Morison remains in the dark over his Leeds United future after being forced out by manager Brian McDermott.

Morison joined United from Norwich City in the January transfer window in a deal that saw Luciano Becchio move in the opposite direction to Carrow Road.

The Wales international scored three goals in 16 appearances during the second half of the campaign but fell out of favour following the departure of Neil Warnock, failing to complete 90 minutes during McDermott's four games in charge at the end of the season.

The 29-year-old was then told to find a new club by McDermott on the first day of pre-season, with Morison joining former club Millwall on a season-long loan.

But Morison, who has three years still to run on his current contract at Leeds, is unaware whether he has a future at Elland Road.

"I've not got a clue," Morison told IBTimes UK.

"I don't know what the summer is going to bring. I've got three years there, two years after this one so I'd be foolish to speculate.

"At the end of the day I don't know Brian's reasons for letting me leave, whether it's financial or that he's not having me as a football player; I've never had that conversation. When I go back there in the summer we'll see what happens.

"It was really frustrating because I didn't see it coming," he added. "It's disappointing. I thought it was going to be the start of a new phase in my career at Leeds but it turned out not to be but there's not much I can do about it now."

Tasked with rebuilding his career, Morison returns to Millwall after scoring 40 goals in 95 matches during his two-season spell at the Den from 2009-2011.

By the time the ex-Stevenage forward had joined Norwich, Morison had helped take the Lions from League One to mid-table in the Championship while earning a reputation as one of the Football League's most uncompromising forwards.

But after being marginalised by Canaries boss Chris Hughton and dismissed by McDermott, Morison is plotting a return to the Premier League.

"You do wonder if you will [return to the Premier League]," Morison, the part owner of SMGH Racing Club alongside former Norwich team-mate Grant Holt, stated. "All I can do is score as many goals as I can and play as regularly as I can at Millwall. I've been able to get to the Premier League from Millwall before and hopefully I can do it again.

"I don't think I need to prove anything to anyone, my record speaks for itself.

"Apart from last year where I wasn't playing regularly, I'd scored a lot of goals and before that I was 20 goals a year so I think people know what I can do.

"If anything I've got to prove to myself I'm still the player I was a year ago."

Milwall got their season off to the worst possible start with defeat at home to relegation favourites Yeovil Town but quickly got their first win of the campaign against AFC Wimbledon in the League Cup first round.

New manager Steve Lomas, the former West Ham United captain, faces a daunting challenge to get Millwall fans on side in his first season given his links with their arch east London rivals, and Morison says the 39-year-old was brave to take the job.

"It shows how much bottle he's got to take the job and shows what sort of character he is and what sort of man he is," Morison explained.

"It's fantastic and he's brilliant and he's really shown that. It takes a big man to come in after being a West Ham legend with the fans the way they are but he knows what he wants to do from the club's point of view. It's really, really positive."
