Declan shows he’s claret and blue to his backbone

Declan Rice was at the centre of a transfer saga in the summer.

There were plenty of reports linking a number of clubs with the Hammers star, with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United seemingly interested in a deal to take him away from the London Stadium.

But you really wouldn’t know it because the utter dedication to West Ham United is obvious every minute he is on the field of play.

That his agent (Dad) apparently wants  to be informed of offers over £70 million appear to make absolutely no difference to the man – he’s a Hammer and that’s obvious in every breath he takes.

In stark contrast Harry Kane mopes around the pitch without scoring a goal, and seeing his side lose to Crystal Palace, Chelsea, and Arsenal in succession. Rice has been central and committed to everything good about the Hammers.

West Ham have only lost one game this season and Rice has been in the middle of everything, quite literally.

He is developing into the single best box-to-box midfielder in the Premier League and is providing assists, scoring goals, and driving this team on through his passionate performances.

None of us want Rice to go anywhere but the reality is he would make his way into any team in world football.

I want to believe he will remain at this club and become a legend as big as Mooro  – his performance and commitment level every game is incredible.

With Declan Rice at our club , genuinely anything can happen for the Irons this term.
