Ravel Morrison Assault Charge: West Ham Midfielder Arrives At Manchester Magistrates' Court

Premier League footballer Ravel Morrison has arrived at Manchester Magistrates' Court.

The West Ham United midfielder faces two counts of common assault after allegedly punching and slapping his ex-girlfriend Reah Mansoor, 19, and her mother, Parveen Mansoor, 39, in the early hours of Sunday 27 July.

Morrison, 21, joined the Hammers from Manchester United in January 2012 for £500,000 and has spent spells on loan at Birmingham City and Queens Park Rangers.

The England Under-21 international won the 2011 FA Youth Cup with United in a team that included Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.
