Dave Sullivan tweets Ravel Morrison asking him to re-join West Ham

In a strange social media move, David Sullivan's son contacted the former West Ham midfielder.

The son of West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan has pleaded with Ravel Morrison on Twitter for a return to the Hammers.

Indeed, Morrison enjoyed some iconic moments at Upton Park, most notably his wondergoal during a 3-0 derby win over Tottenham Hotspur.

He never quite cut it at West Ham in terms of consistency, however, and his character has badly let him down at every club he has been at.

Nevertheless, Dave Sullivan (Jr) messaged the 22-year-old on social media to ask him back to east London.

The co-owner's son may have been serious or joking but, considering the fact Jack Sullivan has a column for West Ham's official website, the actions of the co-owner's children are well publicised and his Morrison request is certainly an odd one.

Queens Park Rangers head of football operations Les Ferdinand recently admitted the west London side did try to bring Morrison to Loftus Road this summer, according to GetWestLondon.

West Ham, meanwhile, will no doubt need all the support they can get in terms of squad depth this season. But would the enigmatic Morrison really ever be the answer for the Hammers again?
