West Ham starlet Ravel Morrison is attracting plenty of interest in the current transfer window but Hammers assistant manager Neil McDonald feels the midfielder must simply focus on getting back to his best.
The former Manchester United academy star has been strongly linked with a move across the capital, with former Red Devils’ coach Rene Meulensteen, now in charge at Fulham, openly talking about a player who has been tipped to be a star for England in the coming years.
Transfer gossip aside, Morrison has been in a West Ham team which is facing a fight for Premier League survival this season and the London outfit needs a player like him to get back to the form that was attracting interest in the first place.
The 20-year-old playmaker has been struggling with a slight groin injury but is expected to feature on Saturday when the Hammers host Newcastle, with the Londoners priced at 2.87 to secure the win.
McDonald has now urged Morrison to get his head down and start helping West Ham avoid the drop, with the club at 3.00 to be relegated this season ahead of their clash with the Magpies.
McDonald said: “He (Morrison) needs to get into the team and he needs to be consistent.
“He had a great run of three or four games where he was outstanding, but he’s a young kid. He’s still learning the game and he goes through inconsistency to a certain extent.
“He’s had a little bit of a groin injury as well, so that’s stop and start. We look forward to him being in the squad on Saturday. He should be fit.”
