West Ham boss Allardyce excited by Morrison progress at Birmingham

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce is delighted with the progress of Ravel Morrison on-loan at Birmingham City.

The 19-year-old, who was turfed out of Manchester United last season following a number of off-field problems, has started to show glimpses of his ­potential after a loan move to St Andrews.

"It's nice to see he has overcome those early ­problems he suffered by not playing," said ­Allardyce.

"We bought him for ­development. So first-team football now until the end of the season hopefully will give him enough ­experience.

"So he can learn to put that ability into the game on a regular basis. A player is always much better when he is in the team as well.

"Hopefully he will have the determination to continue playing in the side."
