The 19-year-old midfielder was once rated as the best player to emerge from Manchester United’s academy since Paul Scholes by former boss Sir Alex Ferguson. But off-field troubles forced Sir Alex to boot him out of the club, with West Ham willing to take on the troubled player last January.
Hammers manager Sam Allardyce sent Morrison on loan to Lee Clark’s Birmingham in the summer with the hope that he would gain valuable first team experience in the Championship before being given a chance in the Premier League.
But Blues manager Lee Clark is unhappy with Morrison’s attitude and has not started him since the opening game of the season. West Ham are, however, reluctant to terminate the 12-month loan deal.
Morrison has denied any problems at St Andrews though, and this morning tweeted: “Good morning everyone hope use all have a good day today and ignore the stuff in the paper about me its NOT one bit true.”
