Morsy signed his first professional contract, a one year-deal with the Valiants, last summer, having been released by Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2008.

The 19-year-old capped his second ever start for the club with a goal and man-of-the-match performance in Vale's 3-1 defeat to Stevenage in February, and has since gone on to feature heavily in the side's starting XI.

After making the breakthrough to the first team, Morsy insisted he owed a lot to Grew, who worked closely with the teenager during his spell as youth team manager.

He told the club's official website: "I didn't get to play in that many games in the first half of the season. I thought I was ready to play, but unfortunately I didn't get that opportunity.

Huge respect

"After Micky Adams left for Sheffield United, Jim Gannon came in and he had the faith in me, gave me a chance and things all started from there really.

"But Mark was my youth team manager and I have got a fantastic relationship with him. Nothing has changed on my part, and I am desperate to play for him and Geoff (Horsfield).

"He looked after me and he was there for me when I needed him. I have got a huge respect for him and now that I am playing under him, I am desperate to repay the faith he has shown in me.

"I see my future at Port Vale and now that I am playing, I am really enjoying how games are coming thick and fast."
