Newcastle 1m bid for Manchester United teen Ravel Morrison

Newcastle make improved 1m bid for United teenage midfielder Morrison

Newcastle have made an improved offer of 1million for Manchester United's Ravel Morrison after their initial 750,000 bid was turned down.

The 18-year-old midfielder, who has made two Carling Cup appearances for Sir Alex Ferguson's side this season, will be out of contract in the summer and United are reluctantly ready to sell him after a series of disciplinary matters.

Highly-regarded: but Ravel Morrison's United career has been dogged by personal problems

Morrison
signed professional
forms two years ago
but is yet to make his
league debut and has
grown frustrated at
his lack of first-team
action, resulting in
repeated fall-outs
with the management.
