Hammers “dreaming” on Declan fee hopes

That the club has decided to entertain offers for Declan Rice this season pleases nobody!

He will have two years left on his deal were the club to exercise the year option but that seems very unlikely with his value running down with every successive month he remains at the club

The player and his agent/father Sean rejected a £200,000 a week contract offer last summer and although Moyes and the board want to keep the captaib it now seems unlikely and instead they will cash in to the highest bidder.

That makes sense but it was a deal which probably supported Declan and his father’s position as much as their own.

And it’s one that didn’t leave CandH Facebook follower Jamie Cramer happy who writes: “I love Dec who for me the best player West Ham have had since I’ve been going.

But it nags at me he is running his contract down and his value to the club, We are dreaming if we think we are getting £100 million for a contract rebel with another two years left on his deal.”

  1. People have been selling Declan Rice to a “bigger” club ever since he broke into our first team. West Ham fans have become conditioned to it. We don’t get upset about it any longer as we’ve been told year on year that it’s just a matter of time before our Captain gets sold and that we should just enjoy him while we’ve got him. Best we can hope for apparently is that he gets sold for a record amount. Just as Rio Ferdinand was all those years ago. Perhaps this time round the money might get reinvested into buying better players instead of just lining the owners pockets.

  2. I was referring to Terry Brown.

  3. A player is worth whatever sum of money a suitor is willing to pay.
    In Declan’s case, even if he has only two years, or eighteen months left on his contract he will be sought after by clubs near and far, I still believe he will renew his deal with a buyout clause inserted.
