West Ham's Ravel Morrison has joined Cardiff on a three-month loan deal, the player has announced on Twitter.

The 21-year-old former Manchester United midfielder has been out of favour at West Ham in recent months amid well-documented personal issues.

happy to get a 3 month loan @CardiffCityFC time to start playing some football again ???

He added in another tweet about West Ham, which he later deleted: "I got no ratings off people in the club not the club it's self (sic) just people in it."

The England Under-21 international is set to face trial in January over allegations he threatened to throw acid in his former girlfriend's face and have her killed.

He is also accused of threatening to blow up Reah Mansoor's house during an alleged four-year campaign of harassment against her and is alleged to have assaulted the 19-year-old and her mother, Parveen Mansoor, 39, in Salford in the early hours of July 27.

Diame: I was played out of position at West Ham

Mohamed Diame has credited the blistering start to his Hull career with a return to his favoured position.

Diame was a deadline day signing from West Ham, costing the Tigers £3.5million, and has already set about repaying manager Steve Bruce's faith.

I am in a different position to West Ham. I was a winger there. I am now back in midfield where I have played all my life. West Ham is a great club and the fans were always behind me. But I am not a winger.

I have goal targets, too, and playing as a winger meant I couldn't meet that target.

I like Hull as a club. I can see myself doing well here.

– Diame speaking to Hull Daily Mail.

Debutants star at Hull

Debut goals from Hull pair Abel Hernandez and Mohamed Diame were only good enough for a draw against West Ham as a Curtis Davies own-goal ensured the spoils were shared in a breathless encounter at the KC Stadium.

The home side lost the lead twice, club record signing Hernandez getting the ball rolling with an impeccable first-half header and Diame restoring the advantage against the side he left on transfer deadline day.

In between Enner Valencia had marked his first league start with a blockbuster strike from 25 yards and the 2-2 draw was settled when Diafra Sakho's modest shot evaded Allan McGregor, only for Davies to bundle over his own line.
