Ravel Morrison has completed his loan move to Championship side Birmingham City.
The 19-year-old midfielder has left West Ham just six months after joining from Manchester United in a cut-price deal - as revealed here on KUMB.com last night.
The reasons for Morrison's departure remain shrouded in mystery although a string of unconfirmed rumours point to an altercation with a member of Sam Allardyce's backroom staff.
The move was confirmed by the midlands club today; a short statement on bcfc.com reading:
"The highly-rated 19-year-old arrives at St. Andrew's from the Barclays Premier League club looking to gain further first-team experience and will bolster Lee Clark's midfield ranks.
"Morrison has been given first-team squad number 12 for the 2012/13 campaign."
The former England youth international made just one appearance for West Ham's first team following his move from Manchester, in the 1-1 draw at Leeds where he was an 81st-minute substitute.
