Former Republic of Ireland international Clinton Morrison has signed non-contract terms with Exeter City.

The 35-year-old, who has been without a club since leaving Colchester United in the summer, will be available for the trip to Accrington Stanley in Sky Bet League 2 on Friday night.

Morrison began his career with Crystal Palace and has also played for Birmingham, Coventry, Sheffield Wednesday, MK Dons and Brentford as well as representing the Republic of Ireland on 36 occasions, scoring nine times, including being part of the squad at the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea.

He told the club's official website: "I've been doing a lot of media work so I was going to concentrate on that but watching football and going to games this season I have missed playing football. I've still got that hunger and desire to play.

"I came down here for a couple of days to train and I thoroughly enjoyed it, so I decided to sign.

"I've still got that hunger and desire - I think the day you see me step onto that pitch and put the shirt on, you'll see.

"I don't take prisoners, I want to win the game and I'm passionate. I've just got to keep going, work hard and try to impress my new team-mates.

"It's a good standard at this level and it's good football. I still love football - when I was training I really enjoyed it.

"The day when you roll out of bed and you can't be bothered that's when you know it's time to call it a day so I'm really glad I've got this opportunity to come and play football."
