Hammers boss keeps schtum over Ravel Morrison's future

MOVE TALK: Morrison, right, against Man City last month (PA)

TALENTED MIDFIELDER Ravel Morrison still may leave West Ham before the season’s end as a potential loan move to Queens Park Rangers beckons.

The 21-year-old is currently out injured, but that has not deterred QPR manager Harry Redknapp from reportedly launching a bid to bring the ex-Man United man to west London.

Morrison is currently struggling for fitness after suffering a groin injury which has plagued him since Christmas as he battles to gain match fitness.

Yet in spite of the rumours about his potential exit from Upton Park, West Ham boss Sam Allardyce refused to clarify if Morrison would be allowed to leave for Loftus Road.

The Hammers manager said: “I haven't heard any rumours any other way regarding Ravel, but he certainly needs to get back training with the squad, and what he's got to realise is that now everybody's fit there's severe competition here, especially with the new players as well.

“That severe competition brings pressure on the players that are playing in the first team, knowing that if they perform poorly they could lose their place and that's certainly the case with the size of the squad at the moment, which is good and healthy.”

Concerning Morrison’s fitness, Allardyce added: “Ravel is still complaining about the problem that's he had from before Christmas, that he's got a rumbling groin problem.

“He's going to have to decide whether to go for the hernia operation or not.

“The answer keeps being no, he doesn't need it, so what we have to do is get him back training and get him back in the squad.”
