Fulham have had a bid for Ravel Morrison rejected, head coach Rene Meulensteen has confirmed.

The Fulham boss also revealed he believes the West Ham midfielder wants to move to Craven Cottage.

Meulensteen coached Morrison through Manchester United's youth systems, and is confident the 20-year-old wants to link up with him again.

The Dutch boss admitted he was not sure whether Fulham would make another bid.

"Yes, we did make a bid," Meulensteen said after Fulham's 3-0 FA Cup third-round replay victory over Norwich at Craven Cottage.

"Yes I think he does want to come.

"He would add pace, power, unpredictability and a real attacking threat.

"I don't know what the situation is now, because that's left with (club director) Alistair Macintosh."
