Allardyce: Fulham’s Morrison bid has unsettled West Ham

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has suggested that Fulham’s bid to sign midfielder Ravel Morrison has unsettled his squad at what is a busy time of the season, reports the London Evening Standard.

Allardyce also told of his frustration at the fact that West Ham have been unable to add to their squad during the January transfer window so far. Everton striker Nikica Jelavic was thought to be a target, but he joined Hull City, and Monaco’s Lacina Traore now looks set to move to Goodison Park, despite West Ham successfully applying for a work permit.

There have been many rumours which have suggested that Morrison is intent on a move to Fulham to rejoin Rene Meulensteen, as they previously worked together at Manchester United. Despite West Ham’s insistence that that is not the case, Allardyce suggests that the bid from the Cottagers has unsettled his team.

He said: “I would think that across the country there is a player at every football club unsettled because of mad January and this lunatic transfer window which creates havoc throughout the game.

“There are rumours that somebody is after your player or you are after somebody else’s player and that creates a stir within your club, which is unhealthy based on how many important games you have in this period.

“For us, it’s been particularly difficult with the problems we’re facing and the transfer window adds to that but it’s a problem we have to deal with.”
