Allardyce wary of United approach for Morrison
Oct 13, 2013 4:13 PM EST
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has admitted he is "fearful" of Manchester United making an approach for in-form midfielder Ravel Morrison.
The 20-year-old moved to Upton Park from the Premier League champions in January 2012.
Morrison had been tipped to become a standout performer for the Old Trafford club, but was sold amid fears over his application to the game off the field.
He spent the entirety of last season on loan at Championship outfit Birmingham City, before returning to West Ham in the close-season.
And he has caught the eye this term with a host of impressive performances in West Ham's engine room, including a fine solo effort in the club's 3-0 victory over Tottenham at White Hart Lane before the international break.
Allardyce says he is unaware of a buy-back agreement with United, but believes his current form could attract the attention of Morrison's former employers.
Speaking to The Daily Mirror, Allardyce said: "I don't know if there is a buy-back clause and what that figure might be if it even exists.
