Wigan could face a fight to keep hold of captain Sam Morsy in the January transfer window after interest emerged from two Championship clubs.
According to the Daily Mail both Norwich City and Derby County are looking at the Latics midfielder who is set to go to the World Cup in 2018 with Egypt.
The tough midfielder has been key for Wigan under new manager Paul Cook who clearly rates the 26-year old.
However, the chance to move to the Championship may appeal and Derby and Norwich are two sides that have ambitions to be pushing for the play-offs this season, so a potential move may tempt him.
One significant factor could be the World Cup, as a move to the Championship may hinder his chance of making the squad if he can’t get a regular game for his club side.
As well as that, Wigan are very well positioned to get promoted to the Championship themselves, with Cook’s men occupying an automatic place at the minute.
Sam Morsy is clearly a very capable player and could certainly cut it in the Championship, hence the interest in him.
Derby and Norwich are both probably a man short in midfield, particularly the Canaries and identifying the Wigan man is a smart move as he has the ability and hunger to step up.
It promises to be a big six months or so for Morsy and you feel that Wigan will only be able to hold onto the midfielder if they’re promoted come May.
Thoughts, Derby, Norwich and Wigan fans? Should Sam Morsy leave and where should he go? Let us know in the comments below.
