West Ham are bracing themselves for a second approach from Fulham for the services of midfielder Ravel Morrison.

The Craven Cottage club made an offer for the 20-year-old on Tuesday evening which was immediately refused by the Hammers, who do not want to sell the player who is regaurded as one of the best prospects around.

Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen is looking to rekindle his relationship with Morrison after working with him at Manchester United before his move to West Ham and they are now considering a second offer.

"We have put in a bid for Ravel Morrison that has been knocked back," Meulensteen said.

"It's back to Alistair Mackintosh [Fulham chief executive] and we'll see what happens.

"I've known him for a long, long time, but the thing is this: we have to wait and see how the club takes it forward as to whether there's another bid.

"He would bring youthfulness, energy, unpredictability, attacking strength, loads of things."
