West Ham will make a complaint to the Premier League having become incensed at Fulham's alleged tapping up of Ravel Morrison as Rene Meulensteen strives to arrange a Manchester United reunion at Craven Cottage.

The Fulham manager confirmed after Tuesday evening's 3-0 victory over Norwich City that a bid had been rejected by the Hammers for the England under-21 international, but it was the comments that followed that particularly irritated the player's employers.

Meulensteen claimed Morrison 'wants to come' to Fulham with the pair having worked together at Manchester United and, according to The Telegraph, this will form the basis of the West Ham complaint.

A bid of £4 million is reported to have been the proposal rejected West Ham, and it would take a further offer worth over double this to trigger the release clause written into the player's contract.

Fulham, or any other interested club, would have to commit to paying £10 million in full in order to activate this contractual stipulation, which is one of several complicated factors in his current deal.

Manchester Evening News, meanwhile, report that Manchester United will be given hope in their own potential pursuit of Morrison after Fulham were knocked back.

The Premier League champions have been linked with a move for the 20-year-old, who left Old Trafford for Upton Park in January 2012 following a number of disciplinary problems.
