All parties appear happy with West Ham United's deal for Manchester United rebel Ravel Morrison.

He has signed a three-and-a-half year deal at Upton Park.

Morrison said: "I'm really pleased to have signed and I'm very happy.

"The move has happened very quickly and I'm looking forward to hopefully moving up to the Premier League with West Ham soon.

"I'm an attacking player and I'm hoping to get the fans on their feet. I met with Sam Allardyce this morning and he welcomed me here.

"I also played with Robert Hall in the England team and I know him well so that will be really helpful to have someone here that I know."

Sir Alex Ferguson said: "In the case of Ravel it's been quite well documented. I think he's better out of Manchester. He's got a great talent but it's how to deal with it that is important."

Hammers boss Sam Allardyce told the London Evening Standard: "Ravel is a talented lad and if he really wants to be a player then we will help him as much as we can along the way.

"Perhaps a change of environment will be beneficial to him and help him make that step up to first team football quicker than perhaps would have been the case at Manchester United. There is no doubt he has exceptional talent."
