Hammers speak out on the Irons big three

Bowen going nowhere

West Ham have no intention of selling their top stars this summer despite regular speculation surrounding Declan Rice, Tomas Soucek and Jarrod Bowen.

The Hammers have conducted a serious debt clearing operation since new Czech investor Daniel Kretinsky joined the board as a 27 per cent shareholder.

And they are ready to hold on to them all whilst reinforcing the squad as a result.

Kretinsky made it clear on his arrival there would be no heavy spending in the winter window and that turned out to be the case with not a penny being spent.

Now, however, the club will launch a big bid for reinforcements in the summer with Declan, Tomas and Jarrod very much a part of things.

Despite all the new rumours about Declan, his future has not looked more tied to the Hammers for a long time with Chelsea in disarray and him having little interest in the Manchester United option.

As we reported last night the club will try to hurry along a new four year deal for Tomas ahead of the summer and Jarrod Bowen is a certainty to remain at the club.

A source told us: “They would each cost lots of money and we have no intention of selling them with the club on such an upward spiral at the moment.”
