Speaking to Sky Sports (via Football Daily), journalist Dharmesh Sheth has dropped some news on Declan Rice and his situation at West Ham United.
The Lowdown: Rice refuses new deal offers…
West Ham’s star man is also expected to reject any new attempts to tie him down at the London Stadium and wants to be informed of any new bids this summer.
The Hammers value him at around £100 million but Rice would apparently be disappointed if they dismiss offers in the region of £60m.
The Latest: Sheth drops Rice news live on air…
Speaking to Sky (via FD), Sheth has now shared some news on Rice and Manchester United’s stance on swooping.
It is believed that West Ham are remaining stubborn when it comes to allowing the 22-year-old to leave this summer and the Red Devils now have zero plans to make a bid.
“I’m told, as it stands, there are no plans to move for Declan Rice in this transfer window,” Sheth explained.
“What’s more, West Ham United simply aren’t for selling in this transfer window, are the noises that we’re getting from West Ham.”
The Verdict: Good news for West Ham?
News of the Red Devils not planning to make a move, as it stands, could come as good news for West Ham given their desire to keep the player.
United are one of the only few clubs who could realistically afford Rice alongside Chelsea and City, with the Premier League giants now seemingly eliminating themselves from the transfer race.
West Ham are set to compete in the Europa League group stages over what will be a more hectic 2021/2022 season, so Moyes will certainly be boosted by this news involving their star player.
