West Ham's Morrison bailed in assault case

04 August 2014, 15:45

London - West Ham United midfielder Ravel Morrison was freed on bail following a private court hearing on Monday over his detention on two charges of common assault, Britain's Press Association reported.

The 21-year-old former Manchester United prospect is accused of assaulting his 19-year-old ex-girlfriend Reah Mansoor and her mother Parveen Mansoor, 39, following a night out in Manchester on July 26.

The England Under-21 international, who spent the weekend in custody, did not attend Monday's hearing at Manchester Crown Court, where his lawyers made a bail application.

He is due to appear at Manchester Magistrates' Court on Thursday. His bail conditions were not released to the media.

Morrison was tipped for stardom after progressing through Manchester United's youth ranks, but disciplinary issues prompted former manager Alex Ferguson to sell him to West Ham for 650,000 ($1.1 million, 820,000 euros) in January 2012.

After spending the 2012-13 campaign on loan at second-tier Birmingham City, Morrison made a bright start to last season for West Ham, notably scoring a fine solo goal in a 3-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur.

But after a groin injury and a loss of form in mid-season, he was loaned to Queens Park Rangers, who he helped secure promotion from the Championship.

Morrison did not travel with West Ham on their recent pre-season tour of New Zealand as he had to undergo groin surgery.
