AmaZulu general manager Lunga Sokhela has now confirmed that Morton has agreed to a two-year contract with the club.

“We have come to an agreement with Michael Morton to extend his stay with us for another two years,” Sokhela told the club’s website.

“Morton is a player who has shown great commitment to our cause, and we are only happy to keep him.”

Morton is happy to stay with Usuthu.

“I’m just happy to have settled things, I know where my future lies. It’s a nice relief.

“I didn’t sign for a team that I don’t think is not going to be in the PSL next season. We have to make sure we keep the status by obviously working hard.

“There’s nine games left and we’re not too far now. Everyone’s put-in is going to be important and I just want to play a part in that,” commented Morton.
