On-loan teenager Ravel Morrison has claimed stories insisting Birmingham City want to send him back to West Ham are untrue.
A tabloid newspaper reported this morning that the Championship club are trying to cancel Morrison's season-long loan spell after it was claimed that his "attitude in training and around the club has been unacceptable".
Further, the story suggests that City manager Lee Clark - who has not included Morrison in a first team squad since the opening day of the season - has "run out of patience" with Morrison, who moved to West Ham from Manchester United back in January.
However the youngster used his Twitter account to deny the paper's reports earlier today.
"Good morning everyone, hope you all have a good day today ," he wrote, adding: "Ignore the stuff in the paper about me, it's NOT one bit true. They must have better stuff to tell everyone than lie about me all the time."
Just yesterday the midfielder, who made just one substitute appearance for West Ham before being shipped out to Birmingham on loan asked: "Why do papers chat so much s**t?
"I'm having a good time at BCFC so before anyone wants to ask me is it's true, no it's NOT."
Morrison joined West Ham in January having been let go by Manchester United after Red Devils boss Alex Ferguson reportedly lost his patience with the player, whose short career has thus far been dogged by controversy.
Further rumours suggest that the youngster was told his days at West Ham were numbered having fallen out with assistant manager Neil McDonald; that followed earlier reports of a bust-up with club captain Kevin Nolan.
