Sheffield United have signed forward Ravel Morrison on a one-year contract.

Former Manchester United prodigy Morrison, 26, impressed Blades boss Chris Wilder during a trial after leaving Swedish side Ostersund and has the option to extend his stay at Bramall Lane.

"Ravel is an undoubted talent and we are delighted that we have put together a deal that suits all parties," said Wilder. "I've spoken to a number of people about him and it is clear that he has serious ability.

"We are getting a fantastic footballer with a tremendous pedigree and this is a great opportunity for Rav, we believe we can help him get back to the level he wants to be."

Championship side QPR have re-signed Ravel Morrison from Lazio, the club have announced.

The midfielder has signed on loan until the end of the season with the option of making the deal permanent in the summer.

I am really pleased to be back here.

It’s a great opportunity for me to come back and hopefully find the form I showed the first time around.

I am ready to work hard and focus fully on playing for Rangers.

I’m really grateful to the manager and everyone else at the club for sorting out this loan deal – and I can’t wait to play in front of the QPR fans again.

West Ham bad boy Morrison might struggle to find club - Allardyce

Ravel Morrison may not find himself another club having wasted his chance to prove his credentials at Cardiff, according to West Ham boss Sam Allardyce.

The 21-year-old's time at Upton Park appears to be coming to an end as the former Manchester United youngster continues to struggle both on and off the pitch.

Allardyce has spoken of financial constraints preventing from adding major signings to his squad but, when asked if shipping out Morrison could provide extra funds, the 60-year-old replied: "I don't think that's going to help in this situation because Rav didn't perform at Cardiff.

"He went there to play games of football and try and reinvent himself. If he'd have done the business there he could have created a much more healthy position for himself either back here or somewhere else but, because he was pretty much on the fringes of the team, he was struggling.

"He was expected to be pushing back for promotion so he's left himself in a very difficult position now."
