The Hawks striker still has a year to run on his contract at Westleigh Park but it has become increasingly clear he does not feature in the plans of boss Lee Bradbury.

Morgan, who joined the Hawks last summer, is the highest-paid player on the club’s books.

However, he had a disappointing campaign last term – making just 13 league starts and failing to score.

He spent the closing stages of last season on loan at Wealdstone.

‘Marvin doesn’t feature my plans for this season so this move is best for all concerned,’ said Bradbury.

‘It hasn’t really worked out for him at the club.’

Morgan started his career at Wealdstone as a youth player before signing for League Two outfit Aldershot Town in 2008.

He scored 25 goals in 93 games before moving to Shrewsbury Town in 2011 and helping them win promotion to League One in 2012.

After spending two seasons at Plymouth Argyle, which included a loan spell at Hartlepool United, Morgan joined the Hawks last summer.
