Crewe Alexandra have failed to agree a fee with Stevenage Borough for striker Steve Morison.

Morison has been linked with a move to the Alex for some time now but it has been announced today that the two clubs could not agree a fee for the 24 year old striker.

After failing to agree a fee Morison has signed a new 3 year deal with the Boro resulting in manager Graham Westley taking him of the transfer list.

Westley told the Stevenage official site “We had a revised written offer from Crewe after we turned down the first one, but that still didn`t match our valuation. Steve`s goals are worth a lot to us and our preference was always to try and keep him if we could. I`ve told Crewe that he`s signed a new deal and is now off the list, but to be fair they handled themselves in a very civilized manner and did everything correctly, which is refreshing. I have a lot of respect for them for the way they managed their interest in our contracted player.”

The Morison deal looks to be the second failure of the day with it looking increasingly unlikely that Leeds United striker Anthony Elding will sign.
