Ex-Sheffield United man Ravel Morrison linked with Huddersfield switch

Huddersfield Town are apparently considering a move for Ravel Morrison.

The former Sheffield United midfielder is a free agent after leaving ADO Den Haag in January.

Morrison had signed with the Dutch side until the end of the season, but his deal was ended early.

Now Sun reporter Alan Nixon claims Huddersfield want to bring in the 28-year-old to check on his fitness ahead of a possible move.

It would see Morrison return to English football for the first time since leaving the Blades last summer.

The Jamaica international played just four times for United, though, as he failed to break into Chris Wilder’s first team plans.

Morrison was loaned to Middlesbrough in the latter half of 2019/20 as a result.

Wilder was recently asked by Rio Ferdinand for his Vibe With FIVE podcast to describe the Manchester United youth product in five words. The 53-year-old responded; “Unpredictable, maverick, humble, a natural, and frustrating.”

Morrison is seeking his 12th different club in a career that has never truly lived up to expectations.

Tipped for great things at Old Trafford due to his natural talent, the midfielder has since struggled to settle.

Morrison has only ever reached double figures in terms of appearances with four sides. The most games he has played for a single club is 30 with Birmingham City.

Having also spent time in Italy, Mexico and Norway during a varied career to date, Morrison is keen for his next team to be in England.

“I had a meeting with a Championship club and think that’s looking very positive,” he told Ferdinand on his podcast.

“I’d like to stay local because of family, I’ve got two little brothers and my mum, and I’ve been travelling all my life.

“But I’ve got a team in Spain in La Liga, so that could happen.”

Along with the Terriers, Derby County and Nottingham Forest have also been linked with a move for Morrison.

Away from the Championship, Turkish side Kasimpasa are thought to be keeping tabs too.
