West Ham fear over star’s contract clause

West Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison has an unusual clause in his current Hammers contract that could earn him up to £60,000 a week by the end of January, according to the Daily Telegraph.

A number of clubs have been watching the exciting England under-21 international who has shone for the struggling East London club this season, although big money bids may have to wait until the summer.

The clause in Morrison’s deal means that if West Ham receive a bid of £10million or more, the players’ wages will be quadrupled taking his earning to £60,000-a-week.

The Hammers owners were so keen to ensure the volatile star was happy that they bowed down to his demands, although even though would not have expected the 20 year old to impress in the way he has this season.

With the club struggling to find some funds to buy a striker or two in the January transfer window, a £10million bid may not be immediately dismissed although the players’ £18million release clause is a more likely scenario in the summer.
