Morrison’s transfer comes after he was released by Derby County at the end of his season-long spell with the club.

While with The Rams, he was managed by Rooney – who recently became the DC United head coach – and became a key player in their valiant fight against relegation.

Speaking about the signing, DC United general manager Lucy Rushton said: “Ravel is a dynamic and exciting player who has experience performing at the elite levels in Europe and Mexico.

“He is a top-class midfielder with excellent technical ability and positional versatility.

“His game intelligence and all-round attacking ability allow him to fit perfectly in the system and style that Wayne wants to play.

“We look forward to integrating him with the roster and having him contribute on the field as soon as possible.”

Morrison came through United’s youth set-up, winning the FA Youth Cup in 2010, and played three matches for them between 2010 and 2012.

But while he was considered to be an incredibly prodigious talent as a teenager, he was marred by off-field troubles and the Red Devils released him in 2012.

Since then, he has played for the likes of West Ham, Birmingham, QPR, Cardiff, Lazio and Sheffield United.

Morrison has also received 14 caps for the Jamaica national team.

He debuted for the country in 2020, six years after his final appearance for the England U21s.
