A twist in the ongoing saga of West Ham United star midfielder Declan Rice has now been backed by reliable club insider ExWHUemployee.
The Lowdown: Rice twist reported…
There have been numerous claims over Rice and whether or not he could depart the London Stadium this summer.
While journalists Dean Jones and Scott Saunders first claimed that the 23-year-old is more open than ever to a Rush Green exit, Hammers insider Claret & Hugh stated that David Moyes’ star man is committed to the cause for 2022/2023 at least.
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano shared another twist on Friday evening – breaking news that Rice has turned down a third contract offer and is ‘now open to a move this summer’ (Twitter).
The Latest: Ex backs development…
The Verdict: Blow for Moyes?
While this doesn’t come as the best news for Irons supporters, GSB’s unwavering stance that he is ‘untouchable‘ has been backed by Sky Sports – who claim that West Ham will not budge in the next window.
This provides a glimmer of assurance for Moyes and co as they gear up for what will be a very interesting Premier League campaign next year.
West Ham will apparently be backed with a £150 million kitty in the summer and intend to show Rice their ambition, so it remains to be seen whether the starlet could eventually change his stance depending on developments, and even if he doesn’t it is clear at this point GSB will only sell for a colossal figure.
