West Ham boss Allardyce denies pushing Morrison to sign with agent

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has denied reports of falling out with Ravel Morrison after pushing him to sign with an agent.

It is has been claimed that West Ham manager Allardyce wanted the maverick midfielder to sign with his own representative, Mark Curtis.

But Allardyce said: "It is completely unfounded. The rumours or allegations will be made, probably by Ravel's representatives. But there is no truth in the fact that I have sat with Ravel Morrison and tried to press him into signing with any agent, never mind [with] mine.

"It's his choice and decision - not mine. Unless they (the players) ask me."

When asked if he had spoken to or put pressure on the 21-year-old over his choice of agent, Allardyce replied: "No, I didn't. I haven't had a discussion on Ravel signing with Mark Curtis."
