Ravel Morrison looks to have shored up a deal with West Ham, if reports are to be believed, with the youngster's long standing contract dispute with Manchester United finally coming to a close.

Newcastle had a bid turned down for Morrison at the start of the month, and Sir Alex Ferguson confirmed that the midfielder had made demands that the Red Devils were unwilling to meet for a new deal.

Morrison's current contract runs out at United this summer, and while he has insisted he is yet to turn down any deals put forward by the club, sources such as the Daily Telegraph are reporting that West Ham have made an offer for Morrison to play first team football straight away.

Roma were also believed to be interested in the 18 year old, who has been plagued by problems off the pitch, but Morrison has chosen to make the move to West Ham in the hopes of helping the side get promoted back into the Premier League this season.

United have been faced with the choice over Morrison, of risking the starlet going to a tribunal in summer for compensation, or selling him now to recoup as many funds as possible.

Meanwhile, it's a different story for Paul Pogba, who looks set to stay at United until the summer at least with clubs such as Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City reportedly interested.

While Arsenal and City were believed to be willing to wait until summer, according to the Daily Mail, Chelsea are hoping to steal the march on their rivals and may bid today after sending scouts to watch him in action for the reserves last week.

Pogba is also holding out on a better deal at United, and Ferguson has made it clear that he won't be taken hostage by any of his youngsters to provide more money than he thinks they deserve.

While United have insisted all month that they will bring no new faces into the fold, Morrsion and Pogba's situations look likely to be the most prominent stories of the day at Old Trafford as deadline day hits its peak.
