Cardiff cough up Morrison wage bill


Ambitious Cardiff City have coughed up the wages for West Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison over the period of his three month loan deal.

ClaretandHugh was told earlier this afternoon that there was no hesitation by the Championship club to agree a deal for a player they believe can help push the club back into the Premier League.

City have been tracking ‘Rav’ for several months and believe the player can make a real difference at the club and we understand they are paying his reported £15k a week wages.

However, Sam Allardyce has made it clear the Hammers will be watching the players progress on and off the pitch and that he most certainly hasn’t been ruled out of his future plans.

The fact though that the Bluebirds were ready to unhesitatingly foot the wages show how highly they rate a player who is now in the last year of his contract.

Cardfiff are currently sitting in 16th spot in the Championship with nine points from eight games.

    All very well but I’m sure ol saggy chops was thinking the same last season and that the boy wonder would fire them to automatic promotion.
    Yes they did ultimately got lucky in the play off finals but as I remember ravel played little to no part in the run in to the end of the season.
    So although morrisson is hugely talented and could turn the taffs season around single handedly, he also comes with more than his fair share of baggage and could equally prove to be a huge liability as he takes another drink in the last chance saloon! COYI!
