When it was confirmed that Ravel Morrison was leaving Östersunds, there were many West Ham fans who would have liked to see him return to the Hammers.

The midfielder – who has a reputation as a misfit due to the numerous questions there have been regarding his attitude – represented the Hammers from 2012 to 2015, though he had three loan spells during that period.

Despite the fans’ wishes, there has been no news of West Ham making a move for the 26-year-old.

Though it has been confirmed that he is currently having a trial with Sheffield United, as reported by and other outlets.

ExWHUEmployee has also tweeted about the former Hammer’s trial:

The Blades have had a sense of rivalry with West Ham ever since the 2006/07 season, where Carlos Tevez’s contributions – most notably the winner on the final day against Manchester United – played a large part in keeping West Ham up, while also relegating Sheffield United.

They have felt hard done by ever since due to the circumstances around Tevez’s deal, which has seen the rivalry form.

Regardless, while some Hammers are disappointed Morrison probably won’t join their side, they are glad to see him being given a chance by a Premier League club – despite the rivalry.
