West Ham complain over Fulham

West Ham United are understood to have made a complaint to the Premier League over comments made by Rene Meulensteen about Ravel Morrison.

Speaking on Tuesday night after the FA Cup replay against Norwich, Meulensteen admitted that Fulham had had a bid for Morrison rejected by West Ham.

Meulensteen coached Morrison through Manchester United's youth systems during his time at Old Trafford.

"Yes, we did make a bid," Meulensteen said after the 3-0 win over Norwich. "Yes, I think he does want to come.

"He would add pace, power, unpredictability and a real attacking threat. I don't know what the situation is now, because that's left with our director Alistair Macintosh."

United academy product Morrison has impressed at Upton Park this season after a loan spell with Birmingham last term.

Morrison had struggled to settle in London after leaving Old Trafford in January 2012, but has hit form in this campaign.
