Huddersfield Town manager Carlos Corberan has told BBC West Yorkshire how Ravel Morrison is an option for them one week after Derby County rejected the chance to sign him.

The former Manchester United attacker is currently a free agent and on the lookout for a new club after departing Dutch club ADO Den Haag in January.

Derby were cited as a potential option to sign him with Wayne Rooney a former teammate.

But Rooney recently told The Sun how he turned down the chance to sign the mercurial playmaker, saying he was happy with his current options at Pride Park.

“Obviously I know Ravel because I played with him, but I am happy with the squad I’ve got, it’s a good squad of players. I hope Ravel can find a club which he deserves, because he’s a fantastic player, and I wish him all the best,” the Rams boss explained.

Morrison said recently how he was in talks with a Championship club.

Now, Huddersfield manager Carlos Corberan has strongly suggested he was referring to the Terriers after admitting to BBC West Yorkshire how Morrison is an option.

At 28, the talented playmaker still has time to realise his potential.

But he must grab his next opportunity with both hands after failing to shine at the likes of West Ham United, Queens Park Rangers, Sheffield United and Middlesbrough.

During his spell at Boro, former manager Jonathan Woodgate labelled him an ‘absolutely outstanding’ player when answering questions by reporters for the Northern Echo.

The talent is clearly there. But Morrison has yet to show it.

Huddersfield may well be considering him as the Terriers look for a spark. A run of two draws and six defeats in their last eight games has seen them slide down the table.

Derby host Huddersfield next week in a game both will be desperate to win.
