West Ham deny Morrison strike reports

West Ham have denied reports that Ravel Morrison will go on strike in order to force a transfer, reports Sky Sports.

The youngster is reportedly interested in a move to Fulham, with Cottagers boss Rene Meulensteen claiming the Hammers have rejected a bid for Morrison. West Ham have since reported Fulham to the Premier League.

With West Ham boss Sam Allardyce busy with transfer business, assistant manager Neil McDonald told the media that Morrison will not be forcing a move by missing training: “It is all media reports and whatever has been said… I think the club and the Premier League are dealing with that so I’d prefer not to dwell on that any more.

“There seems to be a story about Rav every week. The lad comes in and trains, sometimes he has had a little bit of a groin injury, but we’ve man-managed that. He trained on Wednesday with a huge, big smile on his face with the rest of the squad so (reports he may go on strike) are news to me.

“We look forward to him being in the squad on Saturday, he should be fit, he’s been training with the lads and he’s brought a lot of joy, especially with winning against Cardiff – he cheered everyone up when he came back as well.”

Morrison has been a bright spark for a struggling West Ham side, with his superb individual goal at Tottenham earlier this season a particular highlight.
