West Ham's Allardyce rejects Morrison agent claims

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has refuted claims that he tried to persuade Ravel Morrison to change agents.

It has been reported that Allardyce was trying to urge the 21-year old midfielder to become a client of his agent, Mark Curtis, which subsequently prompted the England U21 international to seek an Upton Park departure.

However, Allardyce has completely rejected the rumours regarding Morrison who moved on loan to QPR this week.

"It's completely unfounded. I think the rumours or allegations will be made probably by Ravel's representatives," he said.

"But there is no truth in the fact I have sat with Ravel Morrison and tried to press him into signing with any agent, never mind mine.

"It's his choice, his decision, not mine. I haven't had a discussion on Ravel signing with Mark Curtis, no.

"I think the world that revolves around Ravel is quite unique in terms of the publicity he gets but there we go."
