Ravel Morrison: Denies turning down new contract
Manchester United starlet Ravel Morrison has insisted that he has not turned down a contract offer from the club.
The 18-year-old England youth international has hit the headlines in recent weeks after Newcastle United launched a bid for the player.
United chief Sir Alex Ferguson then stated that Morrison had turned down the club's offer of a new deal, with his current contract set to expire at the end of the season.

"I have never 1s [once] turned down a contract off Manchester United," he Tweeted.
Morrison, who is yet to make his league debut for the club but has played in the Carling Cup, is also believed to be attracting interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.
