Championship snubs departing Ravel

MorrisonbigRavel Morrison – unwanted by any Championship club on loan – has been paid up by West Ham United as a result!

The Hammers came to a deal with the midfielder which has allowed him to leave the club ahead of his summer move to Lazio.

The Irons were ready to allow the 21 year old to move to another loan club on loan in the window that opens on Monday.

But it quickly became clear there were no clubs out there for the player and that even had there been he would have been wanted on a bottom of the  barrel cut price deal.

A source said: “We have paid him up. We came to an agreement. Nobody in the Championship wanted to loan him and they would have wanted a discount on the wages had there been.

“That would have seen them only paying them them to last day of the season, when his contract runs to June 30th.

  1. Lesson learnt next time we get a good offer from someone for a fringe player let him go and collect the money,
    Or if the directors like him better than the manager sack the manager,
    Before we take on any more problem players we need to make sure the manager is up to getting the best out of them,BFS cannot stand flair player just look at the people he stands by KN,AC and Matty Taylor old fashioned pro,s that give him work rate but not flair,
    No team wins anything nowadays without ability,yes you can stay in the top flight but only mid table like Stoke,WBA,Ect Ect and I want to watch more than that
    Bye Bye SAM this club deserves more than that.

  2. Some days ago I wrote I hate the way BFS managed Ravel making him look like the evil of West Ham for his hard character. I’m sure he would have made the difference giving him confidence and and letting him playing. He’s much more better than a lot of players and above all he’s young and skilled. I’m really said he’ll leave our club… Good luck Rav, I’ll never forget your wonderful goal against Spurs!

  3. Yeah it’s all big Sam’s fault!
    The biggest club in the world didn’t want him, the best manager ever in british football couldn’t do anything with him and a procession of clubs both prem and champs since have rejected him.
    Finally, now no club in the league even wants him on loan.

    Yeah, it’s all big sams fault!,,,,

  4. Philtheiron, I’ve clearly understood you love pur manager and his fantastic playing style, but please, let me express my opinion. Thanks.
