Ravel Morrison looks set to be given yet another chance after leaving Sheffield United, with a number of clubs said to be keen on the midfielder.
Morrison was released this summer after failing to win over Chris Wilder in his 12 months at Bramall Lane. The Blades boss gave the former Man United man a one-year deal last summer in a move that came as a surprise to plenty of Unitedites, many of whom were sceptical over the decision.
That scepticism was, ultimately, right. Morrison played less than 15 minutes of Premier League football and featured only in a few cup games for United.
However, according to respected journalist Pete O’Rourke, Morrison is set to be given another chance in the game, with Dutch duo Vitesse Arnhem and FC Utrecht both said to be keen. Furthermore, Morrison is also said to have a number of Championship clubs monitoring his situation.
It could be yet another ‘last chance saloon’ move for the former Old Trafford youth star. Having played in Norway, Italy, and England, it wouldn’t come as a big surprise to see him make a move to the Netherlands.
Whoever signs Morrison faces an uphill task but we wish him well – Our View
We aren’t going to sit here and criticise Morrison. Nobody knows what goes on in his mind or why he’s not quite fulfilled his obvious talent.
All we can do, really, is wish him well and hope he finally does find a home somewhere. Chris Wilder never spoke badly of Ravel so it’s probably just a case of a move not working out once again for the 27-year-old.
Hopefully, Morrison can get himself another decent move and produce the goods but whoever does take him on faces the obvious issue of trying to get something out of him where others have failed.
