West Ham outcast Ravel Morrison is reportedly in talks with Serie A side Lazio over a potential move to Italy.

The 21-year-old’s contract at Upton Park expires at the end of the season and with him edged out of the side by Sam Allardyce he will be looking for the exit door this January.

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp told talkSPORT recently that was interested in signing the attacker on a permanent basis after he helped the Hoops achieve promotion to the Premier League scoring six goals in a loan spell last season - but it now looks as if Morrison will have to move overseas to find first-team football.


The youngster has been seen as something of a volatile character and his bold personality has seen him come to blows with Sam Allardyce.

And he made very few friends in Cardiff City after a loan deal was agreed in the summer and Russell Slade terminated his spell in South Wales ahead of schedule.

Edged out

Since his return to London he has been forced to train with the youth development squad.

His last appearance for the Hammers was a substitute’s showing in a 3-1 home defeat to Southampton in August - a game where he did add some intensity going forward but was unable to make much of a difference.

TalkSport understands that he is now in talks with Serie A high-fliers Lazio, who currently sit 3rd in Serie A, over a permanent deal as Big Sam looks to offload him as soon as possible.
