Newly appointed manager Brendan Rodgers has expressed his desire to keep the 35-year-old with club for another year. The former Celtic manager included the defender in his first game in the dugout for Leicester and, despite losing that game 2-1 to Watford, Rodgers spoke to Sky Sports regarding Morgan's contract.
"I've spoken to the club and I would like him to get a year. He is ready if needed and of course he understands the position he is in - that he won't start every game. It happens to the best.
"He needs to get rid of Kasper Schmeichel and Wes Morgan."— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) 8 March 2019
"Morgan's time at the top has gone."
"If Cardiff go down, Neil Etheridge is better than Schmeichel."

"What they've given not just to this club, but to football. The story was absolutely amazing. I've found them really, really good guys. We have to protect their pride while also looking to improve in the summer."
