Premier League: West Ham and former Manchester United player Ravel Morrison released on bail after assault charges

As featured on NewsNow: Football news    eNewsletter

West Ham footballer Ravel Morrison has been released on bail after three days in custody on charges of assaulting his ex-girlfriend and her mother.

Morrison, 21, was handed tow charges of common assault after an alleged incident involving Reah Mansoor, 19, and Parveen Mansoor, 39, on 27 July.

He was remanded in custody on Thursday, but his bail was approved at a Manchester Crown Court hearing earlier today.

The midfielder, who hails from Urmston, will appear before magistrates on Thursday.

These charges will do little to help his cause with West Ham manager Sam Allardyce, who wants to get rid of the player, though he has never openly stated why.

After playing for West Ham in the Premier League, he was abruptly sent on loan to QPR last season. Allardyce has been at odds with the West Ham board over Morrison's future, as they see him as part of the first team's plans.

How these charges will affect his West Ham career remain to be seen.
