Morrison working hard at West Ham despite Fulham links

The 20-year-old assured fans he is focusing on the Hammers next game after Rene Meulensteen confirmed the Cottagers have had an offer turned down for the attacker
Ravel Morrison has insisted he will continue to work hard in training for West Ham whilst he remains at Upton Park.

Goal exclusively revealed on January 7 that the player has told the Hammers of his desire to join Fulham this month, whilst Cottagers manager Rene Meulensteen confirmed on Tuesday that the club have seen a bid for the 20-year-old turned down.

Despite reports that the youngster is refusing to train in order to try and force a move, the former Manchester United man has assured fans he will do his best for the club so long as he remains a West Ham player.

"I've been working really hard over the past few weeks to get back to full fitness after missing a couple of recent games with a groin injury," the 20-year-old told the club's official website.

"I'm feeling fine now and I'm hoping to be involved in Saturday's important game with Newcastle and then the Capital One Cup semi-final with Manchester City on Tuesday.

"Although it is frustrating to read some of the reports in the media, I always try to keep my focus on the next game and show people with my performances on the pitch that I want to do well for West Ham United."

West Ham assistant manager Neil McDonald had earlier confirmed the player would be in the squad for Saturday's clash against Newcastle United in the Premier League.

He also stated that Morrison could be sold if the club receives the right offer, indicating his belief that every player has their price.
