West Ham midfielder Morrison moves on loan to Cardiff

Out-of-favour West Ham United midfielder Ravel Morrison has moved on loan to Championship side Cardiff City on a three-month loan, the Guardian has reported.

The England U-21 international announced the deal on Twitter, declaring his intention of playing regular football again after spending several months out of the team. He found favour with manager Sam Allardyce midway through last season, but much-publicised problems off the field, which include a criminal trial which begins after his time in South Wales comes to an end.

Expressing his desire to join Fulham during the January transfer window saw him lose his place in the midfield and he was sent out on loan to Queens Park Rangers, who he helped return to the Premier League through the play-offs.

Since returning to Upton Park, he has found opportunities hard to come by, with Mark Noble, Cheikhou Kouyate, Alexandre Song and Kevin Nolan all ahead of him in Allardyce’s thinking.

Morrison, who has made two substitute appearances for the Hammers this season, will now be with the managerless Bluebirds until January, and could make his debut against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.
