BIRM­ING­HAM boss Lee Clark has ad­mit­ted that mid­fielder Ravel Mor­ri­son drives him potty – but he is des­per­ate to keep him.

For­mer Manch­ester United star­let Mor­ri­son, 20, has been on-loan fromWest Ham this sea­son and Clark wants him back.

“I know he has en­joyed his time here,”said Clark. “It’s been up and down.

“It’s been rocky for us all as there hasn’t been a day gone by where there hasn’t been some­thing in­volv­ing Ravel whether it was good or bad.

“At times he drives us potty but when I see that abil­ity over the last few months come to fruition he can be an as­set to us.

“Peo­ple may think I’m crazy but I would like to take Ravel on an­other sea­son’s loan to take him to where he can go. If we can have an­other year with him we can con­tinue that de­vel­op­ment.

“He’s will­ing to learn and I’ve said all along there is no doubt about his tal­ent and peo­ple are see­ing that.

“He is an un­be­liev­able foot­baller and it is tough for us.When I sit down with him and say in terms of his football he can be the next Paul Gas­coigne his re­sponse is ‘who is Paul Gas­coigne?’It is a bit of an is­sue!”
