QPR keep ‘Team Ravel’ waiting

Ravel-Morrison-2Ravel Morrison’s advisers are awaiting the outcome of yesterday’s Queens Park Rangers ‘transfer targets’ meeting between Loftus Road owner Tony Fernandes, manager Harry Redknapp.

The pair went into ‘closed session’ with Redknapp claiming he only wanted to sign players he knew, but Morrison – perhaps significantly – was not mentioned.

The former Hammers boss spoke of only working with players “I know” but playmaker Niko Kranjcar’s injury-interrupted loan spell may prompt an offer for Rav.

A source close to the Hammers midfielder told ClaretandHugh this morning: “We have heard nothing from QPR at this stage but that could change at any time.

“Harry likes Rav and the club has money to spend. We chose very carefully from half a dozen clubs when deciding which Rav she join on loan.

“However, he remains West Ham’s player for another year and they are in pole position. There remains more than a possibility he could remain at Upton Park on a new deal.

However, the situation really is up in the air at the moment as we know of quiet interest from two other clubs.”

Co chairman David Gold has revealed that he hopes the player returns to the Boleyn and settles down declaring: “It’s all in his hands but we expect him to play a full part in pre-season.”
