Ravel Morrison joins DC United

July 22, 2022

National midfielder Ravel Morrison has signed with Major League Soccer side DC United from Derby County on a free transfer.

Morrison, 29, will be reunited with DC United's head coach Wayne Rooney, who was his manager at Derby County last season.

"Wayne worked closely with Ravel during his time as manager of Derby County," DC United President of Soccer Operations Dave Kasper said. "Ravel is an incredible talent and his ability to create and score goals is impressive. He has played at the highest levels during his career and his vision, creativity, and ability on the ball will be a huge asset for us."

Morrison's contract with DC United is said to be one-year long, with another year's extension.

He made 38 appearances for Derby County last season and scored five goals for the club.

He has made 14 appearances for Jamaica and scored two goals.

DC United will be his 13th club in a career that has included stints with English clubs Manchester United, West Ham, and Queens Park Rangers, Lazio in Italy, and teams in the Netherlands, Sweden and Mexico.
