England coach Roy Hodgson admits his scouts are keeping tabs on West Ham United midfielder Ravel Morrison.

Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson claimed the ex-Old Trafford youngster was one of the best talents he has ever seen, and Morrison appears to have put his old ways behind him.

Hodgson said: "I believe Ravel has had a very good pre-season, and it will be up to the new (U21) manager to decide whether he wants to pick him or not."
