Krasic attracting BPL interest; BCFC want to re-sign Ravel Morrison

Fenerbahce winger Milos Krasic is reportedly attracting interest from a number of clubs in the English Premier League.

Fenerbahçe winger Milos Krasic is reportedly attracting interest from a number of clubs in the English Premier League, according to the player’s agent.

Krasic, 28, joined the Turkish Süper Lig giants from Juve in a deal worth €7 million in August 2012 after falling down in the pecking order at the Juventus Stadium.

Since 2010, Krasic has played for three clubs: CSKA Moscow, Juventus and Fenerbahçe, with all signs pointing to a new destination for the player in 2013-14.

The Serbia international has undergone a severe dip in form at the Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium, having scored just one goal in 27 appearances for Fenerbahçe last season.

Subsequently, Krasic is once again being linked with a move ahead of the summer transfer window, with Sunderland reportedly one of many clubs interested in his services.

“Milos needs to play, he’s not getting that chance at Fenerbahce,” said the 28-year-old’s agent Dejan Joksimovic.

“Krasic has had offers from the Premier League and we will be considering a move.

“Milos and his wife are happy in Istanbul, however, he also needs to be happy at work. He’s on high wages at Fenerbahce and still has three years on his contract.

“He is a great player and just 28 years old – there are only three to four players at his level in his preferred position.”

BCFC want to re-sign Ravel Morrison

Birmingham City manager Lee Clarke wants loanees Ravel Morrison and Shane Ferguson back at St Andrew’s next season, Sky Sports understands.

Morrison, 20, impressed Clarke during his season-long loan at Birmingham from West Ham United.

The former Manchester United starlet was arguably the Blues’ best player in 2012-13.

As a result, Morrison could find himself competing for a place in the first-team at Upton Park next term, and rightfully so.

In addition, the notorious bad boy managed to stay out of trouble — for the most part — while on loan at St Andrew’s, due in large part to the efforts of manager Lee Clarke.

“I have made it common knowledge that I would like to re-sign Ravel Morrison and Shane Ferguson,” revealed Clarke.

“We have registered our interest in bringing those lads back so that’s a possibility.

“Ravel and Shane have both indicated to me that they would like to come back.

“The thing with Ravel is that, for a manager, he has been a challenge, without a shadow of a doubt.

“But it’s a challenge I have relished and I have enjoyed trying to help him learn, not just about the football side, but off-the-field stuff, how you behave as a professional.”

Morrison bagged three goals and three assists in 30 appearances, including 26 starts, across all competitions for Birmingham City last season, helping the Blues attain a 12th-place finish in the English Championship.
