Hammers report Fulham for Morrison comments

West Ham United are understood to have made a complaint to the Premier League regarding comments made by Fulham manager René Meulensteen.

The Hammers are reported to have contacted the governing body after the Dutch coach told the press that United midfielder Ravel Morrison, mysteriously absent in recent weeks despite being declared fit at Christmas, wanted to move to Craven Cottage.

"Yes, we did make a bid," Meulensteen said following Fulham's 3-0 FA Cup replay win over Norwich. Yes, I think he does want to come. He would add pace, power, unpredictability and a real attacking threat. I don't know what the situation is now, because that's left with our director Alistair Macintosh."

Morrison's short career at the Boleyn Ground has been littered with tales of training ground bust-ups and a series of other incidents. Sam Allardyce is believed to have finally lost patience with the talented youngster, who now faces being bombed out of his second club withint three years.

West Ham are hoping to secure around £10million for the sale of the England Under 21, who moved to east London two years ago this month.
