West Ham 'accept they will have to sell Declan Rice in summer' as Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd eye £100million transfer | The Sun
WEST HAM have reportedly accepted that they will have to sell Declan Rice this summer.
The club captain has attracted interest from top clubs in the Premier League for his form at the club over the last couple of seasons.
The Hammers have been able to keep hold of him following the retirement of veteran Mark Noble.
But according to the Daily Mail, the East London side are prepared to sell Rice, 24, if an appropriate offer comes in for him.
Rice's contract expires in 2024, but there is an option to extend the deal by a further year for the club.
West Ham will use this clause in their negotiations and argue that his contract is valid until 2025.
