New deals for Lanzini and Rice will need to wait

New deals for Manuel Lanzini and Declan Rice will need to wait until West Ham’s Premier League status is confirmed.

West Ham wants to tie Rice down to a new deal worth around £25,000 a week. The 19-year-old is currently contacted until 2020 and is believed to be on £10,000 a week despite playing 23 senior appearances this season.

West Ham also wants to secure a new long-term deal with Manuel Lanzini. The 25-year-old Argentina playmaker has two years left on his £35,000-a-week deal, which also has a one-year option to extend. The midfielder could be looking to double his wages up to £70,000 per week to put him on par with other senior players in the first team. A new contract has been mooted for some time and insiders have suggested that frustration has built up with his representatives.

Last weekend West Ham Vice-Chairman Karren Brady admitted that West Ham wages are currently up to £105m per year up from £95m last season and that trend looks set to rise as more of the new TV money goes to players and agents.
