No divided loyalties for Morgan as Forest visit his new employers
WES Morgan is crystal clear. Tomorrow, he will have no divided loyalties.
But, while he will be committed to ensuring his Leicester City side make it a bad day for Nottingham Forest, come the end of the season, he hopes to see both sides successful.
And, in an ideal world, he hopes both sides are in the Premier League next season.
"To have played for my hometown club and spent ten years there is fantastic," said Morgan, who was sold to the Foxes last January, after coming through the ranks at Forest.

"All my family and friends are Forest fans and sometimes I have to step back and think, 'wow', I did that. It is a great achievement.
"One of the big regrets is that I was never part of a Forest side that reached the Premier League. One of the things I wanted to do at Forest was get promoted to the Premier League.
" It didn't quite work out like that. But I wish them all the best and I am sure that one day they will actually make it."
Morgan is expecting a tough game tomorrow afternoon, as his former side and his current team go head-to-head at the King Power stadium.
And he revealed that his family will once more be along to support him tomorrow - even if they will be giving their backing to the Foxes on this occasion.
"Obviously, it is well known that this is a very important game," he said.
"The rivalry between the two clubs is there.
"From my point of view, I spent a long time at Forest and I have a lot of fond memories and good times there.
"I keep in contact with a lot of players who are there and it is a big game for us, and me.
"My family will be at the game. They are Forest fans. Since I have joined Leicester they have come to most of my games and support me.
"I am sure it will be strange for them but hopefully they are coming to support me first and then secondly Forest."
Morgan says he still owes Forest a debt of thanks for giving him his chance in football.
"The Forest academy is quite well known for producing good players and I am quite thankful to have come through an academy where the likes of Jermaine Jenas, Michael Dawson and Andy Reid came through," he said.
But Morgan may not be quite ready to pay back that debt tomorrow.
