Ravel Morrison likes tweet about re-joining West Ham

Ravel Morrison was previously on West Ham United's books.

Former West Ham United star Ravel Morrison is a free agent.....again.

The 26-year-old, who spent three years on the Hammers' books, is available on a Bosman after his contract with Swedish side Ostersund expired this week.

Morrison is widely considered as being one of the most naturally-gifted footballers that England have produced in recent decades, after coming through the ranks at Manchester United.

But attitude issues have stifled his potential in a major way and it remains to be seen what the future holds for a player who is still very fondly remembered at West Ham, despite not being a huge success.

 

Though he was technically an Iron from 2012 until 2015, Morrison did have a number of underwhelming loan spells away from East London.

One West Ham fan claimed on Twitter recently that he would love to see his side re-sign Morrison as a replacement for Lanzini - and the former England Under-21 international 'liked' the tweet.

It definitely isn't too late for Morrison to have a decent career and salvage some of the promise that he showed all those years ago, but he certainly won't be coming back to the Premier League any time soon, not least to join a club as ambitious as West Ham, who have just signed Pablo Fornals.

Since swapping Manchester United for West Ham in 2012, Morrison has played for seven clubs in as many years, including loans.
