West Ham will not be entering contract talks with starlet Ravel Morrison until the summer, reports Goal.com.

The former Manchester United player has shone in the Premier League this season, and despite attracting interest from his former employees, West Ham won't be rushed into tying the youngster down. 

Morrison has over a year-and-a-half left on his current Hammers deal but reports have claimed the England under-21 international may have a release clause in his contract, a claim chairman David Gold denied on Twitter

"We won't be holding talks on a new contract until near or the end of this season," a source told Goal.com. 

"Were we to go to him now, it's unlikely he would want to talk. Like us, he wants to see where he is at the end of the season.

"We will then know how many goals he's scored, where he stands as a player, the impact he's had on things, the number of assists he's provided and everything else.

"At that point we can put exactly the right contract before him which includes the necessary provisions for his future potential."

The 20-year-old has scored four goals in eight appearances this season, after breaking into the West Ham first team following an impressive loan spell with Championship side Birmingham last season. 

The starlet has hit the headlines for his apparent disruptive attitude in the past, and this was accounted for being the main reason he was allowed to leave Old Trafford in January 2012. 

But having seemingly focused his attentions on grabbing the headlines on the pitch, the winger has shown exactly why he his talents were rated so highly at United. 

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce revealed this week he was worried over potential bid from David Moyes's side for their former youngster, but that doesn't look like it will rush the club into offering Morrison new terms.
