Arsenal FC and FC Barcelona target Ravel Morrison joins West Ham


West Ham United have completed the signing of Ravel Morrison from Manchester United.

Morrison, who will celebrate his 19th birthday on Thursday, is widely considered to be one of the finest prospects to have emerged from United's academy for a number of years and had been linked with a number of clubs in recent weeks including Arsenal, Barcelona, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain.

The teenager has joined the Hammers on a three and a half year contract for an undisclosed fee believed to be worth around £1million.

Morrison told the club's official website: "I'm really pleased to have signed.

"The move has happened very quickly and I'm looking forward to hopefully moving up to the Premier League with West Ham soon.

"I'm an attacking player and I'm hoping to get the fans on their feet.

"I met with Sam Allardyce this morning and he welcomed me to the club. I also played with Robert Hall in the England team and I know him well so that will be really helpful to have someone here that I know."
