West Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison has not requested to leave the club amid reported interest from Fulham and Manchester United, according to Sky Sports.
It was claimed on Tuesday that the England under-21 international had informed Sam Allardyce of a desire to complete a transfer to Fulham before the close of the window later this month.
This assertion has since been contested, however, with a counter-claim that Morrison has not demanded a move, although there is no suggestion that the interest of Fulham is not genuine.
Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen, who saw Morrison at close quarters during their time together at Old Trafford, is reported to be hoping to recruit the former Manchester United prodigy with West Ham looking to raise funds to reinforce their depleted squad.
The 20-year-old has a release clause of £18 million written into his contract and it would appear that West Ham will only let the player leave Upton Park if they can recoup a significant fee.
Morrison is enjoying a breakthrough season with West Ham, but the club find themselves in a battle to retain their Premier League status. The influence of the youngster, who has scored five times this term, would surely be imperative in any bid for survival.
The player is also reported to be a target for Manchester United as David Moyes attempts to revive the champions' flatlining season.
