Clark denies Morrison rift

Birmingham manager Lee Clark has rubbished rumours suggesting that he wanted to send Ravel Morrison back to West Ham.

The 19-year-old midfielder is currently on loan with the Blues for the season having made just one substitute appearance for West Ham since moving to east London from Manchester United in January of this year.

Earlier in the week, reports suggesting that Clark wanted rid of the teenager emerged - reports that, according to both Morrison and the City boss, are wide of the mark.

Speaking to deny that he wanted to out Morrison, Clark told the Birmingham Mail: "I have had a good chat with Ravel this week and he knows where he wants to be and he knows how he’s got to get there.

"We brought him in because he’s a talented young man but there’s more than talent that gets you in the team. Ravel understands that and he’s going to be working extremely hard over the coming weeks to get that sorted."

Morrison - who claimed on Tuesday that he was "having a good time at BCFC" - has not appeared for Birmingham's first team since the opening day of the season.
