Egyptian international midfielder Sam Morsy has signed a new deal with the Championship club until 2021, the club has announced.
The Midfielder first joined the club on 28 January 2016 on a two-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Chesterfield.
Morsy, 27, help the Latics win the League One title last season and featured for his country at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Speaking after 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.”
He has won seven international caps with Egypt, with the latest 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.
