Despite ongoing rumours about his future, the Scottish head coach is adamant about keeping a valued asset. Declan Rice, who has been linked with Manchester United and Chelsea, is no longer available for the “bargain” price of £100 million ($138 million), according to West Ham manager David Moyes.
Rice has spent his whole professional career at West Ham United, having graduated to their senior squad in 2015. The 22-year-old has established himself as one of the Premier League’s most consistent players, with a number of elite teams apparently keeping tabs on his progress, but Moyes has ruled out trading a precious asset in the near future.
Rice’s worth was said to have climbed again after his great start to the new season during the summer transfer window, when it was speculated that the Hammers would have accepted a £100 million approach for him.
Asked whether he worries about potential suitors coming in for Rice next year, Moyes told Sky Sports: “No I don’t, because there was a bargain to be got with Declan at £100m. That bargain’s now gone.
