The 22-year-old has spent most of the last two seasons on the treatment table due a string of injuries.
Gradi still believes in Morris and feels he can have an injury-free season and get his career back on track.
The defender, who can also operate in midfield, has been offered non-contract terms due to his injury history.
"Alex is the forgotten man in some ways," Gradi told the club's official website.
"He hasn't really played for two years because of injury, but he should now be fit for pre-season and we have offered him non-contract terms to see how he goes on.
"Alex has played as a defender for most of his career but we'd just moved him into central midfield when the injury happened.
"He is a lad with limitless energy and looked like he had the knack of getting goals. He's a player who keeps getting into the six-yard box."
