Morrison has been charged with section 47 assault and two counts of common assault after police were called to an address in Salford in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The 21-year-old is accused of attacking a 19-year-old woman outside a bar in Manchester city centre and later assaulting the same woman and another 39-year-old woman in Salford.

A police statement confirmed: "At about 3.20am on Sunday, July 27 2014, police were called to an address on Alexandra Road, Peel Green, Salford, following reports a 19-year-old woman and a 39-year-old woman had been assaulted.

"Officers attended and established the young woman had also been assaulted outside a bar in Manchester city centre earlier that evening and a 21-year-old man was subsequently arrested at a later date.

"Ravel Morrison, of Urmston, is charged with two common assaults. He is due before Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court on July 31, 2014."

The midfielder started his career at Manchester United, but left to join West Ham in the January 2012 transfer window before loan spells with Birmingham and QPR.
