Declan Rice is ready to talk with the Hammers about a new deal but not until the club knows which League we will be playing in next season.
The young central defender is fully expected to sign a new four or five year deal but the club want to make sure at which level they will be playing.
The Hammers are ready to tie him down to a long term deal after the teenager has become one of the high performers of a troubled season.
And there is little question the youngster will commit his future to the Irons for at least another four years.
He is seen in many people’s minds as the next Mark Noble at the club and without doubt a future Hammers skipper.
Both he and goalkeeper Adrian will enter talks over a new deal with the goalkeeper too ready to pledge his future to the club
