Harry Redknapp looks to have won the race to sign West Ham’s Ravel Morrison on loan.
Morrison hasn’t featured for the Hammers since mid-January with boss Sam Allardyce seemingly increasingly frustrated with the player’s claims of a troublesome groin injury.
Claretand Hugh was contacted by a source close to the player this evening (Thurs) claiming the 21 year old is “99 per cent certain ” to make the switch to Loftus Road next week in the Football League’s emergency loan window.
Former Hammers boss Redknapp has a history of handling players with ‘difficult’ relationships as was the case most famously with Paolo Di Canio.
Our source said: “It’s now 99 per cent certain that Ravel will join Rangers next week.
“Harry sees him as a player to put the final touch to the team’s promotion push. There’s no option to buy but that’s not to say the club won’t come in for him at the end of the season.”
Redknapp expressed his interest in the player publicly earlier in the week and has beaten Leicester City, Nottingham Forest, Reading and Derby County to the player in the emergency loan window.”
