West Ham: Hammers have no concerns over Declan Rice, says Dean Jones

West Ham: Hammers have no concerns over Declan Rice, says Dean Jones -Follow up

West Ham United currently have no concerns over Declan Rice and his future at the club, according to transfer insider Dean Jones.

The Lowdown: Interest in Rice

The England international has been subject to heavy transfer interest in recent seasons and this summer was no different.

According to Sports Mole, Manchester United and Chelsea were interested in signing the youngster ahead of the current Premier League season, but a £120m price-tag kept the suitors at bay.

Reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano recently claimed Rice was ‘simply untouchable’ but the player’s current deal does expire in 2024.

The Latest: Jones’ claim

Jones believes West Ham aren’t worried about their new club captain right now as the player is fully invested and focused on giving his all to the Irons.

Speaking with GiveMeSport, the transfer insider claimed:

“For now, I mean, West Ham are very confident about the place that Rice is in. He’s knuckling down and he trusts the process. He knows that any move for him will come along at the moment in which he actually needs it.”

The Verdict: Crucial to Hammers’ success

The defensive midfielder has already demonstrated his importance to David Moyes’ side once again this season.

As per WhoScored, the £62,000-a-week maestro has averaged 3 tackles, 1.8 interceptions and 1.7 clearances per league game, also leading the team for the highest number of passes per 90 minutes.

Can you name all of these forgotten West Ham flops...who is this Allardyce signing?

At just 23 years old, Rice has already made 202 appearances for the Irons, illustrating his incredible rise to stardom at such a young age.

Having played every single minute of Premier League football so far this season, Rice is paramount to West Ham’s success and this update over his future should put supporters at ease for now at least.
