Exclusive: Rice contract talks underway

West Ham are currently in talks with Declan Rice over a new bumper contract.

There was disappointment within the club at the headlines attracted by his Arsenal howler but the Hammers know they have a serious discovery on their hands and talks – which have gone on for a couple of weeks -are continuing .

There is great confidence that the 19 year old will pen a new deal which will see his money go from £2.k a week basic to £20k a week with bonus clauses and promised reviews after a certain number of games.

We understand Declan has made his desire to sign a Hammers deal clear and the liklehood is a four year deal is in on the cards.

He knows that he is set for regular first team football although David Moyes is believed to see him as a midfielder rather than defender and will continue to hunt for quality at the heart of defence.

Even were a top club to emerge looking to grab him he would be doing a deal with us because he knows the experience he can gain with the club is invaluable for his future.

A source told CandH: “There shouldn’t be a problem. He loves West Ham and wants to be a big part of things here.”

  1. If he plays eventually in midfield he will become our own Roy Keane, Every top club will come looking so tie him down to 4+2 option so we can demand what we want to get rid of them. It also depends on us buying in good enough CBs to replace him at the back.
