Sam Allardyce: 'Ravel Morrison needs to improve behaviour for new deal'

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce says that Ravel Morrison needs to show improvements in his character off the pitch in order to receive a new contract.

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has claimed that Ravel Morrison needs to improve his behaviour off the pitch in order to earn a new contract at Upton Park.

The controversial 21-year-old, who sealed a three-month loan deal with Cardiff City this week, comes to the end of his contract next summer.

"It is not about him impressing me as a footballer, it is about him applying himself to a disciplined life in general," London24 quotes Allardyce as saying. "That is what needs to happen and we hope it happens and the sooner the better."

Morrison signed for the Hammers from Manchester United in 2012.
