Morgan: My future's up in the air

Bucks Free Press: Dean Morgan celebrates his second goal against Morecambe Dean Morgan celebrates his second goal against Morecambe

DEAN Morgan says he wants to stay at Wycombe Wanderers - but doesn't know what the future holds.

The striker's short-term deal with the club expires next month, but he hasn't discussed what will happen next with manager Gareth Ainsworth.

He said he wants to stay at Adams Park though, saying he can feel something special being created under Ainsworth.

When asked if he'd spoken about his future with the boss, Morgan said: "Not as yet. We'll have to wait and see - it's all up in the air but I'm happy.

"I came here and felt the club should be higher than it is. I'm hoping I can be part of something special here. I'm enjoying myself."

The 29-year-old did his chances of landing a new deal no harm at all by scoring twice against Morecambe on Saturday, taking his tally for the season to five.

In the process he broke a nine-match goalless streak in front of goal with his brace but he said he was unconcerned at that run.

Morgan said: "I've been playing well, I've been happy with my performances. Most of the goals we've scored I've been invovled in. I'm just glad the opportunities that have come to Joel [Grant] have come to me today.

"I've always said I'd rather the team won and I don't score, and get us back up the league where we should be."

Ainsworth kept his cards close to his chest when asked about Morgan's future but said the striker was "closer than most" to a new deal.

But the Blues boss said he was happy with the way the striker had been performing in his all-action team.

He said: "Dean's been doing everything in the last six or seven weeks except score. He's been hitting posts, he's been hitting crossbars.

"He's a player with unbelievable ability. If you see him training every day you sometimes think why is Dean at this level. There are reasons but I think Dean can go on and have a second chance and have a kick start of his career.

"He's doing really well for us. Today he's scored two great goals, he's causing defences all sorts of problems and that's why he's in the team."

When asked for his thoughts on Morgan's future at Adams Park, Ainsworth said: "There's lots of thoughts. There's a few of them out of contract this season- Dean's closer than most [to getting a new contract].

"We're going to have to think about them."
