The Spireites are keen to sign the former Wolves trainee, who has rejected the offer of a new contract at Vale Park, and have had one bid turned down.

Any deal rests on whether the two clubs can reach a settlement as the Valiants are entitled to compensation with Morsy under the age of 24.

Morsy's agent Matt Kleinman said: "I know Chesterfield have been in contact with Port Vale about trying to do a deal for Sam to move there, but I don't believe that the two clubs have agreed anything yet.

"The situation is quite straightforward. Sam is technically out of contract with Port Vale. They offered him a new deal which has not been accepted and Port Vale have since rescinded their offer because he did not come back and accept it.

"So at the moment Sam is due to go back to Port Vale to do pre-season training there and he will continue to be paid in accordance with his previous contract until a club comes in and makes an offer that Port Vale deem suitable to take him away.

"Chesterfield have made an offer but at this stage I believe it has not been accepted and talks between the two clubs remain ongoing.

"I don't know how far apart the two clubs are in terms of their valuations of Sam, and neither is it something I would get involved in.

"At this moment in time he remains at Port Vale although technically he hasn't signed a contract with them."

Kleinman added: "But Chesterfield is something that interests Sam. Chesterfield want Sam and he would like to join. Hopefully the two clubs can work something out."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
