The commanding centre-half has been strongly linked with a return to former employers Nottingham Forest - with the Reds reported to have failed with three bids during the summer window.

Forest have turned their attention to Morgan as he has entered the final year of his current deal with Leicester.

The 29-year-old is, however, prepared to prolong his stay at the King Power Stadium and bring an end to the rumours which are threatening to run into the New Year.

Morgan told the Leicester Mercury: "I'm happy. The manager has shown me nothing but love. It would be nice to be offered a contract.

"There was a lot of speculation. But I am just here to focus on my job and do what I do best, which is play football for this club. I can just concentrate on my football.

"The window is closed now so there will be no more speculation."

Nigel Pearson has always stressed that Morgan remains a key part of his plans and he has reiterated that he would like to see fresh terms agreed.

He said: "Our skipper is very, very important to us so hopefully we can do something there."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
