QPR line up Ravel bid but City/Liverpool in frame


Ravel mRavel Morrison will  be the subject of a  bid from Queens Park Rangers should the team be promoted back to the Premier League.

The West Ham player- on loan to the Hoops until the end of the season – continues to make a major impact on the side after a poor run of results.

And sources  close to the player have made it clear the chances of him remaining at Upton Park are unlikely.

Manager Sam Allardyce shocked many by allowing the England under-21 international to leave the club on a 93-day loan and the player has taken full advantage by showing some of his best form over recent games.

Morrison has a year left on his West Ham deal but chances of him signing a new contract are rapidly disappearing.

Rangers determined to head the queue for his services although Liverpool and Manchester city are watching the situation carefully and could move in with a summer bid.

However, a source close to the player told us that Ravel can’t afford to miss out on regular first team football as “he has done at West Ham” and that he could become a big four player after a regular stay in the QPR team over a two or three year deal!

QPR boss Harry Redknapp said: “Ravel is a very gifted footballer and I have had no problems with his so called behavioural problems.

“However, we can’t talk about the summer at this stage. Let’s see where we are in June. However, I’m grateful to Sam Allardyce and West Ham for allowing us to take the boy on loan,!
