Despite his bags of talent, playmaker Ravel Morrison looks set to leave West Ham United in the very near future after his failed loan move to Cardiff City.
Morrison, 21, has had a litany of off field incidents ever since his time at Manchester United, which eventually became too much for Sir Alex Ferguson, and in 2012 he was shipped off to West Ham.
Bar a purple patch at the start of last season, Morrison's time at West Ham has been one of missed opportunities again, and his spell with Cardiff was yet another.
Morrison failed to make any sort of impact under Russell Slade, and was sent back to West Ham well in advance of the expiration of his loan deal - leaving West Ham to ponder his future.
He may well have a destination in sight though, as a return to QPR - the club where he enjoyed success on loan last season - are interested in re-signing him, according to The Telegraph; but only if West Ham terminate his contract next month.
'Harry Redknapp, the Queens Park Rangers manager, has spoken to Tony Fernandes, the club’s chairman, about the possibility of signing Ravel Morrison on a six‑month deal if the troubled midfielder’s contract is terminated by West Ham,' they state.
Morrison was outstanding under Redknapp in what was arguably the best period of his career so far, but the possible move to Loftus Road could already be Morrison's last chance in the top flight.
