Former Manchester United footballer Ravel Morrison is set to be released from prison after a judge granted a bail application.

Morrison, 21, was remanded in custody last month after he was charged with two counts of common assault.

Midfielder Morrison, who moved to West Ham United from Manchester United in 2012, was arrested on Sunday July 27 after police were called to an address in Peel Green, Salford, in the early hours.

It followed reports that a 19-year-old woman had been assaulted outside a nightclub in Manchester city centre.

A 39-year-old woman also claimed she had been attacked.

Morrison is due to appear at Manchester magistrates court again on Thursday.
