Not good news

Nope, it isn’t . I can see him deciding league one football isn’t helping his international career, and so looks to move away . You couldn’t blame him tbh .

Their loss. To be fair they haven't played him for 4 years so it's not like a sudden downturn after joining us.

As said earlier hasn't played for years only had 7 caps.Needs to concentrate on the job in hand to who pay his wages

Why is it bad news? If playing in lge1 was an issue, he wouldn't have been named in the original squad in the 1st place.

Juggsy: good point 👍

Good, let him get a good rest, a decen pre season and a great season. At 30, he needs to be playing less not more

Saxonblue74 added 09:25 - May 28
I may be mistaken here, but didn't he make himself " unavailable" when selected earlier last season?

Saxonblue74 added 09:25 - May 28
...May have been Macauley Bonne?

I’m a big fan of Morsy. Made a big difference to our midfield since his arrival. My only concern is the number of yellow cards he attracts. 15 last season. Suggesting he can be a little hot headed.
Whilst we will no doubt lose him for matches due to his discipline, selfishly at least we aren’t losing him for internationals.

less is more...time and time again players turn up at training exhausted from internationals
