Rice on his chances of doing a Noble

Declan Rice has refused to rule out the possibility of becoming the next Mark Noble by remaining at the club for life!

The captain made it 15 years as a Hammers when turning out at  Watford last weekend and is one of the very few one club men left in the Premier League.

But although it’s always best to keep a firm lid on all expectations in times such as these when things can change at a stroke, the 20 year old  certainly isn’t in the mood to deny anything other than the possibility he could do the same as the skipper.

Having signed a long term deal at the London Stadium, the defensive midfielder is certainly up for staying with the Hammers for a while yet regardless.

It’s a nice thought that he could be the next Noble – and is certainly a future club skipper.

It was a question well asked by  Four Four Two, to which Rice gave a relatively straightforward reply giving hope that he will be around for a long time yet.

He said: “Yeah,” (page 101 of issue 304 of Four Four Two).

  1. Well assuming the club don’t cave, I take that at face value. He’s committed to staying with us this season and next and then will probably look and see if we’ve made any progress. I think that’s all a club at our level can ask of players with the ability to go on and win things at a higher level. Give us a chance to get bigger and better and then judge the situation. Dec seems pretty level headed so hopefully that happens.
