“That bargain is now gone” David Moyes issues update on future of Declan Rice

Rice impresses in the early season

Declan Rice has been a key component of West Ham’s early season form. The Irons, under the careful watch of David Moyes, have amassed 14 points from their opening 8 fixtures, and have the chance to move into the top four this afternoon should they beat Tottenham.


While Michail Antonio and Jarrad Bowen will grab the goalscoring headlines, Rice has been seriously impressive in the engine room alongside Thomas Soucek in beginning attacking moves.

And now, Moyes has had his say on the 22 year-old’s future.

Moyes reveals 100 million not enough for the midfielder

Speaking ahead of the game, David Moyes was asked about the future of his midfielder, and revealed the astronomical price it would now take to prize the Iron away from the London Stadium.

Asked by Sky Sports about the potential of losing players in January, Moyes said:

“There was a bargain to be got with Declan at £100 million, that bargain is now gone. We have a lot of really good players at this football club and I think while you are building and developing, I think people will always come and look at your players”

Chelsea and Manchester United were both heavily linked with the England defensive midfielder in the summer, and while no move was forthcoming, both are thought to remain interested.

Now, however, they may have been priced out of a move.
