Report: Newcastle United expected to sign 23-year-old from Serie A in January

Newcastle United will be making a swoop for Lazio playmaker Ravel Morrison during the January transfer window, according to reports from the Sun.

There is no doubting the fact that Ravel Morrison is an extremely talented young player but unfortunately, his poor attitude has proven to be a problem and as a result, the midfielder has not fulfilled his huge potential as of yet.

Having failed at Manchester United and West Ham United, the 23-year-old made a surprise decision to join Lazio last season but his time in Italy has proven to be a very difficult one as well.

Now Morrison is widely expected to make a return to England and in shock reports, it has been claimed that Newcastle United are set to sign the former Manchester United prodigy.

According to the Sun, Morrison was wanted by Newcastle during the summer transfer window as well and while the move to St. James’ Park for the midfielder evidently did not come into fruition, it is set to take in January next year.
