Clinton Morrison has signed an extension to his contract at Exeter City which will keep him at the League Two club until the end of the season.

The former Republic of Ireland forward, 36, has scored twice in 45 games for City since joining in November 2014.

"The intention on both my part and his part is that we continued through to the end of the season," manager Paul Tisdale told BBC Sport.

"I doubt very much he'd be driving down to Exeter if he didn't enjoy it."

Clinton Morrison's career
Began his career in 1997 at Crystal Palace, scoring 71 goals in 181 games before moving to Birmingham City for a club record £4.25m in 2002.
After three seasons at St Andrew's he returned to Palace for £2m before signing for Coventry City in 2008.
Spent two seasons at the Ricoh Arena before joining Sheffield Wednesday. After loans at MK Dons and Brentford, he joined Colchester in 2012.

Tisdale added: "He's at the twilight of his career, so he's enjoying every last minute of it. I'm sure that shows through in the way he comes to work. All players bring something different and Clinton certainly has done."

Morrison, who scored nine goals in 36 international appearances for the Republic of Ireland, was part of their squad at the 2002 World Cup.

But the London-born striker said his first goal for Exeter, against Stevenage in October, was 'the best of his career'.
