Morgan wants to stay with Shots

Last updated : 30 December 2010 By BBC Sport

Aldershot Town striker Marvin Morgan has played down speculation of a move away from the club and insists he wants to stay at the Recreation Ground.The 27-year-old, whose contract expires in the summer, is the subject of a £50,000 bid from Crawley Town.

The five-goal forward told BBC Surrey: "It's been publicised that I'm going to Crawley but I'm not really looking to go anywhere else.

"Obviously I'm happy to stay here and I want to stay here. That's how it is."

Speculation grew after Morgan posted a message on social networking website Twitter over Christmas which hinted at interest from Crawley.

At this moment in time he's got five goals. That wouldn't be a loss. If he had 10 it would be a loss

He said: "It was just a bit of banter with one of my mates Dean Howell [former Aldershot and current Crawley defender].

"I've joked around. I've said I'm only going to Real Madrid if they come in for me.

"I'll have a word with he club in the summer and if we can come to a deal we'll come to a deal. If not I'll go elsewhere."

Morgan has scored five goals in 20 appearances for the Shots this season and he is keen to start finding the back of the net again after seven games without a goal.

"I'm on a bad run at the minute but as you know with strikers if you score one goal you can get your confidence up," he said.

"That's what I'm trying to do. I want to get back to the goal-scoring form before I got suspended.

"Once I get one goal I think more will come."

Aldershot manager Kevin Dillon said: "Crawley offered £50,000 and it's up to Marvin if he wants to go. I've told him that.

"I didn't want to make it public about Crawley coming in for him but every man and his dog seems to know - how, I don't know.

"At this moment in time he's got five goals. That wouldn't be a loss. If he had 10 it would be a loss.

"If he wants to stay I'm happy. If he's not scoring goals he won't be in the team soon."

Dillon has also confirmed Crawley have made an offer for midfielder Manny Panther and AFC Wimbledon have shown interest in forward Danny Hylton.
