Morgan Alexander Fox (born 21 September 1993) is a Welsh professional footballer who plays as a defender for Football League Championship club Sheffield Wednesday.

Playing career[edit]

Fox earned his first professional contract at Charlton Athletic in March 2012. Fox joined League One side Notts County on loan on 28 November 2013.[3] Assistant Manager Greg Abbott stated that "We needed some depth to the squad... we haven't got any obvious cover and Alan Sheehan is carrying one or two little injuries that won't go away."[4] He made his debut at Meadow Lane two days later in a 1–0 defeat to Brentford, coming on a substitute for Manny Smith on 68 minutes.[5] He scored his first senior goal on 14 December in a 4–0 win over Colchester United at the Colchester Community Stadium.[6]

Fox was an un-used substitute in Charlton's 1–0 home league win against Queens Park Rangers but made his debut in the next match against Sheffield Wednesday in a 2–1 win in the fifth round of the FA Cup at Hillsborough.[7][8]

On 25 April 2014, Fox signed a new three-year deal, securing his future to Charlton until 2017.[9] He scored his first goal for Charlton in a 2–0 win against Queens Park Rangers on 8 August 2015.[10]

On 6 January 2017, Fox joined Sheffield Wednesday.[11]

Fox made his full debut for Sheffield Wednesday on 31 January 2017 in a 2–2 draw away at Bristol City, playing the full 90 minutes

International career[edit]

Fox has been capped seven times for Wales at under-21 level.[12]

Fox was named in the Wales senior squad for the UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying matches against Cyprus and Israel played on 3 and 6 September 2015.[12]
