Adam Morgan is set to leave Yeovil Town, boss Gary Johnson has confirmed.

The 20-year-old committed to a two-and-a-half-year contract at Huish Park in January, following an initial loan spell from Liverpool.

But the striker struggled for game time, making only seven substitute appearances after his permanent move.

And, after he turned out for Chesterfield in their pre-season friendly against Shrewsbury, Johnson said: "His future lies away from here."

The Yeovil manager told BBC Somerset: "We feel he won't be in our squad so we need to help him find somewhere to play some football."

Signed: 28 November 2013
Debut:30 November in 3-0 win against Watford
Appearances:Three starts, 10 as a substitute
Last game: 84th-minute substitute in 4-1 defeat by Barnsley

After coming through the youth team, Morgan played three Europa League games for Liverpool and had a loan spell at Rotherham before joining the Glovers.

"They've got to get the mentality of winning football matches and three points meaning the world," added Johnson.

"Sometimes they can come out of the under-21s and still be playing as if there's no points.

"Some handle the intensity of it all and some don't. And, with the ones that don't, you have to try and find them somewhere where they're more comfortable."
