ExWHUemployee claimed on Twitter last night that Declan Rice really likes David Moyes, in what could be a huge boost to West Ham United’s hopes of keeping hold of the midfielder this summer.

Moyes took charge of the Hammers again in December 2019. He was hardly the most popular of appointments. And he made no impact impact whatsoever at the London Stadium during his first few months in charge.

Credit where credit’s due, however, the 57-year-old Scot has really turned things around recently.

West Ham have taken 10 points from their last five games and will now almost certainly avoid relegation.

That means that Moyes will likely remain in charge at West Ham. Although many Hammers fans will not be overjoyed by this, ExWHUemployee has offered an insight into why it might actually be a positive.

Potential boost for West Ham?

Declan Rice is a big fan of the former Everton and Manchester United boss, according to Ex:


Keeping hold of Rice will be of paramount importance for West Ham this summer. The Hammers board must back whoever is in charge next season in the transfer market and match the 21-year-old’s ambitions.

And if that man is Moyes, ExWHUemployee’s claim last night should be great news. If Rice does indeed think very highly of Moyes, he will surely be tempted to stay on at the London Stadium, for one more season at the very least.

The England international is the future of West Ham. Let’s just hope that the owners are prepared to do everything to keep him in east London this summer.
