Morris: Short-term deal
Jody Morris still believes he has a future at the highest level after signing for Scottish First Division side St Johnstone.
The former Chelsea midfielder has struggled with injuries in recent seasons but believes some good performances for St Johnstone could attract attention from a Premier League side.
He has built up his fitness again and is excited to be back playing regularly after penning a short-term deal with St Johnstone until the end of the season.
"I feel I can play at the top level," Morris said in the Daily Record.
"I finished the season last year training with Chelsea and didn't feel out of place. I'm confident I can still compete at that level.
"Even when I went to Charlton after they were relegated they still had most of their Premier League players on the books and I more than held my own.
"My confidence and belief in my ability is still as strong as ever."
Morris will again play under Derek McInnes at St Johnstone, having previously worked with him at Millwall.
He added: "This is a chance for me to get myself fit, go in the shop window and also help Del and the team out here.
"I was sick of sitting about waiting for people to get back to me."
