West Ham end Morrison Fulham complaint

West Ham United have dropped their complaint to the Premier League over Fulham’s attempts to sign midfielder Ravel Morrison in January, report the Telegraph.

The Hammers made their initial complaint on January 15th - effectively accusing their league rivals of tapping up England Under - 21 international after a bid of £4m was rejected.

West Ham were upset by then Fulham Head Coach Rene Meulensteen’s public claims that the player wanted a move across London to Craven Cottage.

Despite these comments the Cottagers had been confident that they had acted within the rules and believed they had enough evidence to prove Morrison was in fact made available for transfer - the midfielder’s later loan move to QPR suggesting he was in fact free to leave the club.

Under current Premier League rules, a club can only be sanctioned if an approach is made for a player who has not obtained prior written consent from the club they are contracted too - and realising their case was likely to be unsuccessful they have dropped their case.

West Ham have now claimed they are happy to have received an apology from Fulham over the Morrison saga and stress the two clubs remain on good terms.
