London: Troublesome midfielder Ravel Morrison has joined second-tier Cardiff City from Premier League side West Ham United on a three-month loan deal, he announced on Tuesday.
"Happy to get a 3 month loan @CardiffCityFC time to start playing some football again," the 21-year-old wrote on Twitter. Neither club has yet confirmed the deal.
In another tweet about West Ham, which he later deleted, he added: "I got no ratings off people in the club not the club it`s self (sic) just people in it."
Morrison, a former Manchester United player, is due to stand trial in January over allegations he threatened to throw acid in his former girlfriend`s face and have her killed.
The England Under-21 international is also accused of threatening to blow up Reah Mansoor`s house and is alleged to have assaulted the 19-year-old and her mother, 39-year-old Parveen Mansoor, after a night out in July.
Morrison was tipped for stardom after graduating from Manchester United`s youth team, but disciplinary issues prompted former manager Alex Ferguson to sell him to West Ham for £650,000 ($1.1 million, 820,000 euros) in January 2012.
He has started only 12 Premier League games since joining West Ham and has spent time on loan at Birmingham City and Queens Park Rangers.
