The former Manchester United midfielder is proving an unexpected bonus for Hammers boss Sam Allardyce.
"It has also been a real bonus that Ravel Morrison is back with us and looking a very different character from the one who went to Birmingham on loan," Nolan told the London Evening Standard.
"It appears as though he has grown up on and off the field, he’s scored goals in pre-season and I am sure that if he can get everything right now he can go on and have a very successful career. I will be helping him as much as I can and, hopefully, he can be a real positive, breaking into the team and getting games under his belt."
