Wes Morgan: Leicester have rejected a second bid from Nottingham Forest

Wes Morgan: Leicester have rejected a second bid from Nottingham Forest

Morgan has made 70 appearances for Leicester since joining from Forest in January 2012, but he is wanted back at the City Ground.

An initial offer of £1million was rejected, and an increased bid of £1.5m has also been turned down, which has prompted Pearson to issue another hands-off warning.

"Wes isn't for sale," Pearson told the Leicester Mercury. "They (Forest) have made a couple of bids but that is irrelevant as far as I'm concerned. I have said before I want to try to keep the squad together.

"If bids come in then there will be questions asked. But I'm working to try to get the team prepared for the season.

"I can't do anything about what other people do. All I can say is that we don't have any intention of selling him.

"What you get with these situations is external influences trying to destabilise us as a football club and ask some questions.

"It happens, I'm sure I'll get asked again, but it is what it is and I think I have made my position quite clear.

"I don't really take much notice of it to be perfectly honest. I'm more concerned about how it affects the squad and I certainly don't want the fans to be concerned about us."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
