Leicester City captain leaves door open for Nottingham Forest return

Leicester City

Leicester City's Wes Morgan has spoken of his stance regarding his contract situation, leaving the door open for his former club.

Leicester City may be coasting at the top of the league, however, due to contractual issues with many key players of the first team squad, they have no reason to be complacent.

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan, along with Danish international Kasper Schmeichel, top goalscorer David Nugent and even boss Nigel Pearson are all out-of-contract at the end of the season and have been told that they may have to wait until the end of the season for an offer.

While the players are still committed to the cause, Wes Morgan has admitted unease by the situation.

''Ideally, we want to get things sorted as soon as possible as other teams will be looking at all the players out of contract, wondering if they can nab them. You must put it to the back of your mind. But it is down to the people upstairs in terms of what they want to do''

Leicester City have finally started to find form this season, after many years of throwing money at trying to earn promotion. But unfortunately, it may have come one or two years too late and the finances at the King Power are far from healthy, which has left the club in no man's land.

Wes Morgan later went on to talk about his concern from a personal perspective, admitting that he could be open to a transfer this January.

''I want to stay. But, while the contract situation is not sorted, it is an opportunity for other teams to come in. I have to think about my family''

Wes Morgan was one of Nottingham Forest's main targets in the summer, but after Leicester stuck their heels in and showed a reluctance to sell, the Reds moved on to other targets. However, with the possibility of Hull City recalling Jack Hobbs from his loan spell at the City Ground, then it is very possible that Billy Davies could go back in for his former captain.
