Morrison: “New Hammers deal not out of question”


Ravel-Morrison-v-BarkleyClaretandHugh has conclusively established that Ravel Morrison could be set for a long West Ham United stay.

Speculation surrounding the 21 year old’s future is intense as he heads for a shop window Wembley play-off final with Queens Park Rangers against Derby County this month.

But tonight sources close to the England under 21 made it clear to ClaretandHugh that he has another year on his West Ham contract adding: “If we can get things together a new deal isn’t out of the question.

We were told exclusively: “Obviously if Rangers get up a bid will be made and they are not alone. There are three other clubs interested.

“However, Ravel is a West Ham player and if the club come in with an offer of their own there’s no reason to believe that he may not sign it.

“West Ham are in the driving seat. If they talk the boy is going to listen. It’s as simple as that.”

Manager Sam Allardyce’s precarious position at Upton Park is also being eyed keenly by those close to Morrison.

One said: “Most people know what may have gone off in that area of operation and these new developments make life interesting from our point of view.”
