The 31-year-old made 42 appearances in the Championship this season scoring twice and assisting seven times including one in their promotion decider against Huddersfield.

As a result, the Ipswich Town skipper was shortlisted for the PFA Championship Fans’ Player of the Year along with teammates Leif Davis and Chelsea loanee Omari Hutchinson.

Morsy faced strong competition from Leicester City’s Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall and Leeds United duo Ethan Ampadu and Crysencio Summerville; however, the Egyptian still prevailed.

Reacting to the award, Morsy said: “Wow huge thank you to all the incredible fans which voted , special time to be apart of Ipswich Town as we go into the Pl. Alhamdoullah!”

Morsy had also claimed the Ipswich Town Player of the Year award earlier as he led the club to back-to-back promotions and a spot in next season’s Premier League for the first time since 2002.

This marked his fifth promotion, having led Chesterfield to League One in 2015, Wigan to the Championship twice in 2016 and 2018, and most recently Ipswich to the Championship from League One last season.
