The Birmingham Mail have reported that Ravel Morrison is set to undergo a medical at Birmingham City ahead of a season long loan move from West Ham United. The 19-year-old was bought from United for an initial £650,000 in January 2011 but only made one appearance as a substitute in an anonymous campaign.
What a fall from grace he is having. Sir Alex gave him chance after chance at United because he was touted as the best raw talent to have emerged out of the academy since the ginger genius himself, Paul Scholes. However, his terrible off the field attitude saw him offloaded to West Ham and it seems like even Sam Allardyce hasn’t even got the time of day for him.
At the time, fans (myself included) were disappointed to see Morrison leave Carrington but suffice to say, we’re sitting pretty smug now. Watching him throw away his talent at United was hard to see but the staff did everything they could to try and turn his fortunes around but he had none of it – surely he regrets it now. The Championship beckons and I’ll be surprised if he gets his head down and works for them when he hasn’t done anything of the sort so far.
As it has always looked, the only way is down for Morrison.
