And the 26-year-old has impressed Chris Wilder enough to earn himself a one-year contract at Bramall Lane.

The United boss said: “Ravel is an undoubted talent and we are delighted that we have put together a deal that suits all parties.

“I’ve spoken to a number of people about him and it is clear that he has serious ability.

“We are getting a fantastic footballer with a tremendous pedigree and this is a great opportunity for Rav, we believe we can help him get back to the level he wants to be.”

Morrison travelled to Portugal with the Blades for their pre-season training camp, and despite a minor injury ruling him out of their friendly victory over Real Betis, he still did enough to convince Wilder to give him a chance.

He added: “He’s done extremely well during his time with us and it was great to have him in Portugal.

“It wasn’t about him coming and being on trial because we knew about his abilities.

“Taking him with us was basically getting to know him and what he’s about, what makes him tick and how he integrates with the players. Trips like what we have been on are invaluable for that.”
