West Ham United assistant manager Neil McDonald says they don't intend to lose Ravel Morrison today.

The former Manchester United trainee is wanted by Fulham, which have made room for him by offloading Adel Taarabt to AC Milan.

But McDonald insists: "I would imagine Ravel will be staying until I'm told otherwise. He has been training and is a creative player who we will need."

The Geordie was also coy over West Ham's interest in Manchester City defender Joleon Lescot.

"Joleon Lescott is Manchester City's player and, until that changes, I cannot comment."
