We are delighted to announce that Wigan Athletic captain Samy Morsy has penned a new two-and-a-half-year contract at the DW Stadium, which will see him remain with the club until the summer of 2021.
Morsy, 27, recently passed a century of appearances for Latics, in which time he helped the club to a record-breaking Sky Bet League One title win last season.
During his time at the DW Stadium, Morsy has received international recognition with Egypt, with the latest of his seven caps coming in a 2-0 win against Swaziland in October after he had featured for the Pharaohs in this summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Speaking about Morsy’s new contract, manager Paul Cook said:
“Samy is a really important player for the club and I know our supporters will be really pleased with this news.
“I have known Samy for a long time and his appetite to learn and better himself every day is second to none.
“He has deserved everything he has got in terms of his place at the World Cup last summer and now his new contract here at Wigan.”
