ExWHUemployee claimed that Declan Rice knows that a new deal is on the cards from West Ham and preliminary contract talks have already begun.
The 21-year-old has evolved into a truly great player over the past few years.
He is now undoubtedly the Hammers most important player and he is absolutely vital to David Moyes.
Declan Rice is under contract at the London Stadium until the summer of 2024 and West Ham have an option of extending that deal by a further 12 months.
The 13-capped England international has been in superb form for the Hammers this season. And if he keeps that up big clubs will undoubtedly be in for him in the summer.
ExWHUemployee has suggested that a new deal could be on the cards for the 21-year-old, however, with preliminary talks having already begun.
Whether Rice accepts the terms offered to him, however, is another matter entirely.
The bottom line is that we have to offer him whatever he wants. We have to make him club captain and match his ambition in the transfer market in January and next summer.
If we can’t do that, nobody will be able to blame Rice if he does in fact decide to leave West Ham.
Let’s just hope that doesn’t happen.
