QPR hint at move for West Ham's Ravel Morrison. Is he worth gamble?

Loftus Road

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has hinted that he would be prepared to bring Ravel Morrison back to Loftus Road from West Ham United.

Harry Redknapp has worked with Ravel Morrison before, and got him performing close to his best as Queens Park Rangers secured promotion back to the Premier League in 2013/14.

A return to Loftus Road could be what the 21-year-old needs to get his career back on track.

There have been too many false dawns down the years, with the former Manchester United academy graduate yet to fulfil his promise.

There is no questioning his ability, but the fact that West Ham United are ready to cut their losses highlights his current struggles.

A recent loan spell at Cardiff City also saw Morrison fail to deliver, with that stint cut short after just seven appearances.

It is now being suggested that the Hammers are prepared to cancel his contract, and Redknapp has hinted that he would be prepared to offer an olive branch if the youngster becomes a free agent.

He told talkSPORT: "I like Ravel. He came last year and I didn't have any problems with him.

"There has got to be a problem with Ravel if Sir Alex Ferguson can't deal with him and Big Sam can't deal with him, so he needs to sort himself out, but he is a real talent and when he was with me he was as good as gold.

“He is a good kid and his ability is just amazing. We can't buy anybody, we are looking at a few loans that can help the team, help the squad. He is one that someone has mentioned to me and he is one we could be interested in - if West Ham want to release him."

Morrison’s attitude has been questioned on several occasions, with there are a fear that a career of considerable promise could implode.

Only he can make the decision to fully focus on his football and rid himself of the distractions which continue to adversely affect his game.

If he can find somewhere he feels comfortable, working for a manager that is prepared to put an arm around his shoulder, then there is still plenty of time for the England U21 international to become the player Sir Alex Ferguson and Sam Allardyce believed he could be for the Red Devils and the Hammers.
