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 - and District Judge James Prowse refused a bail application made by his solicitor Ros Emsley-Smith.

The 21-year-old Morrison, who spoke only to confirm his name and age, is accused of attacking his 19-year-old ex-girlfriend Reah Mansoor outside a bar in Manchester city centre and later assaulting the same woman and her 39-year-old mother Parveen Mansoor in Salford.

District Judge Prowse told him: "You are remanded in custody to appear back before this court by video-link from prison one week from today on August 7."

An earlier 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 in 2009 but left to join West Ham in the January 2012 transfer window before loan spells with Birmingham and QPR.

An England U21 international Sir Alex Ferguson once hailed as the most talented player he had seen, Morrison impressed for West Ham in the early part of last season and was tipped to make Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad before he was loaned out to QPR in February.

Last week Hammers boss Sam Allardyce opened the door for Morrison to return to the fold in pre-season claiming he was an 'outstanding talent who needs to knuckle down and get used to the discipline side of the game'.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
