The midfielder will not be returning to Old Trafford any time soon.
Despite speculation suggesting otherwise, West Ham United have confirmed there is no buy-back clause for Manchester United to re-sign Ravel Morrison, reports BT Sport.
The 20-year-old joined the Hammers for an initial £650,000 this summer after a string of off field controversies at Old Trafford.
However, since impressing for the east London club the Irons were worried United would want to take their youth product back.
Yet West Ham say no clause exists in the midfielder’s contract which would allow that to happen, but they do pay the Red Devils £25,000 every time Morrison makes a first team appearance.
United have signed up talented young Englishman such as Phil Jones and Chris Smalling in recent years, but Sam Allardyce is aiming to ensure the same thing doesn’t happen with this starlet.
“My real big worry is that Manchester United will come back to buy him,” Allardyce was quoted by ITV.
“Look at what happened when Chris Smalling played a handful of games for Fulham – United jumped in with £10 million. Then there was Phil Jones when I was at Blackburn – that’s what you are up against.”
Another concern is that Morrison only has a two-year contract at Upton Park and therefore West Ham will need to tie up a new deal or face losing the youngster.
Currently the midfield ace has a £20m release clause, but the club want to double that to try and ward off potential suitors.
