Sheffield United have signed former West Ham United midfielder Ravel Morrison on a one-year deal after he impressed them during a trial.

The 26-year-old joined the Hammers in January 2012 from Manchester United, but featured just once for the remainder of the season before joining Birmingham City on a season-long loan the following term.

Morrison returned to West Ham the following season, scoring five goals in 21 games in 2013-14 before leaving for Queens Park Rangers in February for a 93-day loan.

The lack of discipline of the former England international saw the Hammers let him join Lazio with just a year left on his contract.

Morrison has since featured for Mexican side Atlas and Swedish side Östersund since leaving East London, but the Blades have handed him a chance to get his career back on track, and his former teammate and ex-West Ham midfielder Jack Collison is very delighted with the news.

Here is how he reacted to Sheffield’s announcement on Twitter:

Morrison was widely tipped for greater things during his tender years, and he has another chance to finally fulfill his huge potential in the Premier League.

Sheffield have taken a punt on the former West Ham man, and all eyes will be on him when the campaign kicks off next month.
