Harry Redknapp raves about Ravel Morrison

Former Southampton and Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp speaks highly of ex-Manchester United and West Ham United prospect Ravel Morrison.

Former Southampton and West Ham United manager Harry Redknapp has been singing the praises of Ravel Morrison on social networking site Twitter.

Redknapp worked with Morrison for a short period of time last year, when the midfielder played for Queens Park Rangers on loan from Premier League outfit West Ham United.

Morrison has been linked with Redknapp’s former club QPR this summer, despite him having signed a pre-contract agreement with Italian outfit Lazio.

According to The Mirror, talks regarding the move of the former England Under-21 international to Loftus Road are at an advanced stage.

The former Manchester United and West Ham midfielder is reportedly homesick and wants to return to England.

Morrison was released by Premier League giants United in 2012, and West Ham terminated his contract in the middle of the 2014-15 campaign.

The midfielder played on loan for Birmingham City, QPR and Cardiff City, but he failed to really gel at those clubs despite showing his promise on occasions.
