Rene Meulensteen: Fulham have bid for West Ham’s Ravel Morrison [video]

“Yes, we did make a bid. Yes, I think he does want to come. He would add pace, power, unpredictability and a real attacking threat. I don’t know what the situation is now, because that’s left with Alistair Macintosh.” – Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen.
It seems a long time since Ravel Morrison was rampaging through the Spurs defence at White Hart Lane and scoring a wonder solo goal for West Ham, prompting calls for a place in the England squad for the World Cup in Brazil.
Now it looks like Morrison will almost certainly leave West Ham in the January transfer window with both Fulham and Cardiff his likely destinations.
Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen may well have the edge over Cardiff as the Dutchman worked with Morrison at Manchester United – the Premier League champions are meanwhile not expected to make an offer.
The bid from the Cottagers is thought to be around four million pounds with Sam Allardyce leaving Morrison out of his squads in recent games as the Hammers do want rid of the talented midfielder.
