Morsy signs contract extension with Chesterfield
The 22-year-old holding midfielder Morsy, who made 39 appearances for Chesterfield in an impressive first season with the Spireites, has signed a contract extension that ties him to the club until the summer of 2016.
Morsy led Chesterfield to being crowned champions of League Two and to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final at Wembley, before he received the club’s Player of the Year award in their end of season ceremony.
After putting pen-to-paper, Morsy expressed his delight on the club’s official channel ‘Spireites Player‘: “We had a great season collectively and individually I thought I did well so I’m delighted to have signed my contract.
“The manager showed belief in me, making me a mainstay in midfield and I knew exactly what he wanted me to do. When a manager believes in you that much, it is easy to repay. The fans also warmed to me straight away, which was a massive help.
“We want a successful season in League 1,” he said.
“We’ve got a very strong spine to the team, with a mixture of youth and experience and strengthening the squad will give us a very good chance next season. You saw what Rotherham did last season and if we strengthen I don’t see why we can’t have a really successful season.”
Chesterfield’s preparations for life in the third tier will inevitably include the Egypt-eligible Morsy, though it would not be surprising if his contribution to the club’s success over the past year leads to interest from clubs higher in the pyramid.
