Declan Rice will not be sold by West Ham United even if he does not sign a new contract.
Rice has contract with the London Club West Ham United till 2025. Declan Rice has turned down many offers by several teams. However, he is reported to be open to leave West Ham this summer.
Declan Rice is effectively under contract with West Ham until the summer of 2025, so the club is in a strong position to prevent that from happening.
Moreover, David Moyes thinks that Declan Rice is “England’s best performer” and “he’s not for sale”.
“I think he’s been England’s best performer from the Euros. The most consistent performer,” the West Ham boss told Sky Sports.
“Some of the players are now playing very well, Harry Kane for example, but if you looked at it from the start of the season to where we are now, I’d put Declan in that very high consistent bracket.”
When asked whether or not he has heard anything about Rice leaving West Ham and whether or not it’s rumours, Moyes replied: “If I had heard something, I wouldn’t tell you.”.
“But the best thing to say is that ‘no we’ve not’, and let me tell you, he’s not for sale. So, that may shut down any questions about Declan, but we do expect questions on him because he’s doing so well.”
“Is he irreplaceable? Well, I had to sell Wayne Rooney early when I was at Everton. I thought Wayne was irreplaceable but what happens in football is you move on. That is what happens in football.”
“Sometimes things like this do happen but we’ve got no intention of letting that happen at this present time here at West Ham.”
