Rice and Coady are currently away on international duty with the England national team.
Both the Hammers and the Wolves stars have enjoyed fantastic campaigns with their respective clubs this season.
Declan Rice has been arguably the Premier League’s best defensive midfielder this term.

Meanwhile, Coady has been one of the top flight’s outstanding central defenders.
And Rice highlighted just how big of a character Coady is, as quoted by the Evening Standard:
“I am only 22. I come here and I am playing with people who have played in the Champions League final, won trophies, won Premier League titles, you kind of take a step back and pick up little different bits from different people. Conor, I have never actually been in a dressing room with him. So to see him and see the impact he has on the squad on the team inside, it is people like him that you need in your changing room. Stuff like that I have taken away and tried to take to West Ham to add that to my game as well.”
Coady is a truly great example for young footballers.
The 28-year-old was moved on by Premier League giants Liverpool in 2014. He moved to Huddersfield before eventually finding his feet at Wolves.
The defender has gone from strength-to-strength at Molineux. The Liverpool-born ace has worked incredibly hard to get where he is now. He is arguably Wolves’ most important player now.
And West Ham star Declan Rice sharing just how much of an impact Coady has had in the England changing room is evidence of just how far the Wolves ace has come over the past few years.
