West Ham midfielder Ravel Morrison has been charged with assaulting two women. 

the 21-year-old faces two counts of common assault following an incident on Sunday at a bar in Manchester and later at a house.

Morrison, of Urmston in Trafford, is accused of attacking a 19-year-old woman outside a bar in Manchester in the early hours of Sunday. 

He is also accused of attacking her again and a 39 year-old woman hours later at an address in Salford.

Greater Manchester Police have released the following statement: 

"At about 3.20am on Sunday, police were called to an address on Alexandra Road, Peel Green, Salford, following reports a 19-year-old woman and a 39-year-old woman had been assaulted.

"Officers attended and established the young woman had also been assaulted outside a bar in Manchester city centre earlier that evening and a 21-year-old man was subsequently arrested at a later date."

Morrison was sold to West Ham by Manchester United's former boss Sir Alex Ferguson in January 2012 for £650,000 and has since been released on loan to QPR and Birmingham City.
