According to a report from the Sun, West Ham are ready to offer Declan Rice a new £120k-a-week deal. And some Hammers fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the news.
The 21-year-old has been superb for the east London outfit over the past two seasons or so.
In fact he has been West Ham’s best and most consistent player.
Rice has been rewarded for his fine form by being called up to the England national team squad. And he has already notched up nine caps for his country.
The former Chelsea academy graduate has played 114 games for the Hammers in all competitions. And he is a huge fan favourite at the London Stadium.
The 21-year-old is probably David Moyes’ most important player. So it was extremely worrying for all us fans when he was continually being linked with a move to Chelsea during the summer transfer window.
The west London outfit were allegedly ready to pay £70 million for Rice (The Sun). But he ended up staying with West Ham.
The Hammers are now ready to offer him a new £120k-a-week deal in order to keep him in east London for the long-term (the Sun).
And some West Ham fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation…
