Finances are tight in Holland due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, but appears Vitesse and FC Utrecht are hopeful of attracting the former Manchester United and West Ham star to the Eredivise.

Morrison was one of the hottest young properties when he was at Manchester United but he failed to live up to his potential.

He was offloaded to West Ham in 2012 with Sir Alex Ferguson telling then Hammers boss Sam Allardyce that Morrison was a brilliant footballer who ‘needed to get away from Manchester and start a new life’.
