Transfer Gossip

Harry Redknapp has been speaking at a press conference today about the impending 93 day loan of West Ham’s Ravel Morrison to QPR.

Harry said “We need someone who can unlock the door, I’ve always had someone in my teams who can change a game. I had Di Canio and Merson at Portsmouth. I’ve had someone special who can turn a game for you. Thought the other day we dominated but Ravel may be one of those lads who can do that for us. It is a gamble for us. He has got baggage or something else.If we didn’t have a problem somewhere he wouldn’t be here, he would still be playing at Manchester United. He has that talent. It’s the chance you take. Somewhere in life you have got to take a chance and take a gamble. Sometimes they come off and sometimes they don’t. Maybe we do need a little bit of a maverick on the pitch. Someone who can do his own thing at time. Adel was the main reason they got promoted. Talk to Clint he was the difference and the icing on the cake that got them up. Hopefully Ravel can do the same.As far as I know he is fit and ready to play. Hopefully he is ok.”

The short term loan is not expected to include an automatic option to sign the player permanently. It appears Ravel’s long standing groin injury has miraculously cleared up.
