Ravel Morrison: Former Man Utd prospect has contract at Dutch club terminated
Former Manchester United prospect Ravel Morrison has had his contract with ADO Den Haag terminated early by mutual consent.
He had joined the Dutch side on a one-year contract in September, as they became the 11th club of his career.
But Morrison, 27, only made five total appearances, with just one Eredivisie start.
“The paths of ADO Den Haag and Ravel Morrison will separate immediately,” read a statement from the Eredivisie team.
“ADO Den Haag and Morrison have decided to terminate the 27-year-old midfielder’s contract by mutual agreement.
“Morrison signed for one season at the Cars Jeans Stadium last summer.
“The Jamaica international has a history with Manchester United, West Ham United and Lazio, among others.
“ADO Den Haag thanks Morrison for his efforts.
“The club wishes him the best of luck in his further career.”
Morrison, now an international with Jamaica, has seen his career enter a decline since leaving United – where he was once seen as the most talented prospect in the club’s academy – in 2012.
He initially joined West Ham and has since represented clubs as varied as Lazio, Sheffield United and Mexican club Atlas.
Morrison has struggled to settle at one club, though.
The most league appearances he has made for one team is just 27 with Birmingham City, where he played on loan from West Ham shortly after his Old Trafford exit.
His last appearance for ADO Den Haag was a 33-minute outing as they lost 2-0 at home to PEC Zwolle in December.
One month earlier, Morrison had featured in their humbling 6-0 league loss to Sparta.
The club are struggling and sit 15th in the standings.
