Darren Moore provides update on prospective new Owls signing Ravel Morrison

Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore told The Star a decision will be made on Ravel Morrison in the coming days when asked if a potential deal is on the cards.

Morrison has been training at Wednesday over the past week.

The mercurial talent is a current free agent after leaving ADO Den Haag in January.

Morrison was previously linked with Derby County and Huddersfield Town, but both Championship clubs backed out of a potential deal leaving Wednesday to step in.


When asked if a deal could be done, Moore claims a decision will be made shortly.

“What we’ll do is take a good look at Ravel and make a decision in the next two, three, four days so we know what we’re doing with Ravel going forward,” Moore explained.

There is no doubt Morrison possesses an abundance of talent.

His physical state, however, is what could prove to be a stumbling block as the former Manchester United man hasn’t played regular football since the turn of the New Year.

Morrison has been lauded by many managers and pundits alike amid spells at Lazio and West Ham United, but at 28 he is now running out of opportunities to realise his potential.

Wednesday may be hoping he could provide a spark in their battle for survival.

Darren Moore’s side ended their losing run with a draw against Huddersfield Town, and they backed that up with an impressive 2-1 win at Yorkshire rivals Barnsley on Saturday.

The Owls will now head into the international break with renewed spirits, and with only six points adrift of safety there is still a chance for them to pull off an unlikely escape.
