Englishman’s weekly wage is set to increase from £12,000 to £65,000 at Upton Park.
West Ham United are preparing to offer in-form midfield player Ravel Morrison a new contract as soon as the winter transfer window reopens for business for the year in January, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.
The former England Under-18 international has enjoyed an eye-catching start to the new campaign for the east London club, culminating in his Goal of the Season contender against arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
And that strike in north London on the weekend now means that Morrison has four goals in total for West Ham this season in eight matches in all competitions, including two strikes in his six Premier League outings for the Hammers.
As a result, Morrison’s crucial and timely form in front of goal for Sam Allardyce’s men – the struggling top-flight outfit are currently being forced to operate without the services of club-record signing Andy Carroll in attack due to a long-standing heel injury picked up by the England international striker – means the club are now said to be preparing a new deal for the 20-year-old.
Morrison arrived at West Ham from Manchester United in January 2012 on a three-and-a-half-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
