Declan Rice is seeing his West Ham dream come true as he looks around the dressing room.

It’s long been a fact of life at the club that if the captain is to remain, he will need to see some quality additions arriving and it appears that is what is happening, and he is among the first to say so.

Despite a widespread view that the captain will be on his way next summer. the appointment of Mark Noble as sporting director and some top signings may encourage him to stay at the club.

As results pick up and the new signings start top make a real impression Declan is clearly excited about what may be possible for the Hammers and that’s great news for all of us keeping fingers crossed that he could stay at the London Stadium.

Speaking to www.whufc.com he made it clear that he was very excited at what he was seeing declaring: “It’s what we needed you know (more quality players.

“I think it’s healthy, it’s really good because you never want to get too comfortable in a position (as a player or a club).

“You always want to be pushed by top players and that makes you push on as well…

“It’s the step that the club needed to take. Us as players you look around the changing room and see the quality we’ve got and it’s exciting.

So it’s really good to have top players and to know that you’re not always safe on the team sheet because we’ve got so many good players now.”

  1. It bodes well that Declan is voicing something that many of us can see happening, despite all the twisty-knicker nonsense and gnashing of teeth.

    Rebuilding takes time, a little tweaking and some bedding in. We may miss a step here and there, but there can be little doubt that we are heading in the right direction now.
