Chesterfield skipper Sam Morsy is the subject of a £1 million bid from Brighton and Hove Albion, ahead of Tuesday’s transfer deadline, according to the Sun.
The 23-year-old holding midfielder has been the subject of interest from other Championship clubs, with MK Dons and Cardiff City also reportedly in the running to sign the Spireites captain, but it would seem Chris Hughton’s Brighton have stolen a march in the race to sign Morsy by making a seven figure offer for his services.
Morsy, Chesterfield’s 2013/14 player of the year, captained the club to a sixth place finish in League One in the 2014/15 season under Paul Cook, where they eventually lost in the play-offs to Preston.
Morsy was a stand-out performer last season, and has continued in a similar vein this term, with the 23-year-old scoring two goals in five appearances as Chesterfield find themselves in ninth place after five matches.
Brighton have been busy on the transfer front this past week, with the highly-rated defender Connor Goldson moving to the Amex from Shrewsbury, along with Jamie Murphy joining from Sheffield United.
