EXCLUSIVE: Cardiff, Leeds among Championship clubs interested in Sam Morsy

Sam Morsy

Recently-appointed Chesterfield club captain Sam Morsy has impressed a number of Championship clubs who are continuing to show interest ahead of the summer transfer window. 

Egypt-eligble midfielder Sam Morsy, who has captained Chesterfield to a Championship promotion playoff place, is being chased by a number of Championship clubs.

KingFut can exclusively reveal that Cardiff, Sheffield Wednesday and Wigan had all made offers in January with Leeds showing strong interest for Sam Morsy, but were hastily rejected by Chesterfield, who lost their top goalscorer Eoin Doyle to Cardiff City and were looking for an astronomical fee for the 23-year-old Egyptian.

Morsy, who in an interview with KingFut expressed his intentions to continue improving his game and progressing with Chesterfield, has said that it would be his dream to represent Egypt.

Chesterfield finished the season with a 1-1 draw against Sheffield United who managed to finish one place above them in 5th.

The Spireites had already guaranteed themselves a promotional playoff place after their 2-0 defeat to League One champions Bristol City.

Chesterfield will play Preston North End in the Championship promotion playoff semi-final on the 7th May at the Proact Stadium with the return leg at Prestons’s Deepdale on 10th May.

    Well that can’t be right, Leeds had a transfer embargo in January and weren’t allowed to pay a fee for any players
