Photo: QPR linked Ravel Morrison poses with his Lazio colours

Former West Ham attacking midfielder Ravel Morrison is a Lazio player.

Ravel Morrison has moved to end speculation over his future by posing for a photo in Lazio training kit.

The former England under-21 international took his first training session with Lazio on Monday, and is expected to be part of their forthcoming Serie A campaign.

He signed a pre-contract deal with Lazio earlier this year, but The Mail reported just last week how the attacking midfielder was being lined up for a move to QPR, who were said to be trying to find a way to release the ex West Ham man from his agreement.

Morrison was released by West Ham earlier in 2015 after falling out of favour and failing to shine on loan at Cardiff City, and the move to Italy is a fresh start for him.

A switch back to QPR at the last minute would have been a backwards step on an ambitious move for him, but if motivated, the former Manchester United trainee has the skill to make an impact in Italy.

The Times has reported that Morrison was due to undergo a medical with Lazio on Wednesday, and formal unveiling could follow.
