Chesterfield FC chief executive Chris Turner said that no official bids have been placed for Egypt-eligible , amid rumors suggesting the player’s departure.

Morsy has implied his intention to leave the club following Chesterfield’s game on Saturday against Millwall, as he thanked the fans for their support over the past two and a half seasons in what appeared to be his farewell message.

Despite Morsy’s speech, Turner insisted that any transfer talk is premature and that no bids have been placed for the 24-year-old midfielder. “I was disappointed to hear that Sam had made comments which suggested that he was on the move,” he said.

Turner, however, told the club’s official website that an enquiry was made from another team. “Yes, there has been an enquiry from another club, but we have yet to receive an offer from them. Until we receive an offer that matches our valuation of Sam, he will remain a Chesterfield player,” he added.

confirmed on Sunday that Wigan Athletic are preparing to make a bid for Morsy, as the League One side expressed their desire to sign him during the winter transfer window.

Chesterfield FC chief executive suggested that a number of attempts have been made to renew Morsy’s contract, which expires in the summer. Chesterfield’s captain however made it clear that he wants to depart the club.

“It is now a case of seeing whether a suitable deal can be agreed with another club or if Sam remains with us until the end of the season,” he explained.

Turner emphasised that they will never block a move away for a player who wants to leave the club.

“I can assure our fans that our decision will be made, as always, in the best interests of the club. We only want players who are committed to the club and we will not stand in the way of any player who does not want to play for us,” he said.

He then concluded his remarks by wishing Morsy a fruitful future and thanking him for his time at the club.

“Sam has made a valuable contribution during his time at the club and he will leave with our best wishes, whether it is during this transfer window or when he is a free agent at the end of the season,” he concluded.

Morsy joined Chesterfield in the summer of 2013 and was a major catalyst in helping their promotion bid to League One.
