Declan Rice has made a decision about his West Ham future – with Chelsea keen on a deal

Rice is a man that is seemingly in the headlines alot over the past few seasons after developing into one of the best holding midfielders in the game, and that has led to links with the club

We may have one of the best squads in world football – but Thomas Tuchel knows that he needs to freshen up the squad and it has been claimed that when Ted Boehly comes to the club and gets settled – he will make a move for Declan Rice

The 23-year-old’s refusal to sign new terms at the London Stadium has thrown his future into doubt – But Mirror Football understands there is no great desire from the player for him to quit the Hammers ahead of a season which will be busy enough with the World Cup in Qatar in November.

It is claimed that Rice has decided to stay at the Hammers for one more season – as he does not want his world cup place put in jeopardy with a move to a new club this summer

Rice himself recently suggested he was ready to rebuff approaches from elsewhere, with his full focus remaining on ‘going again’ after suffering Europa League heartache at the semi-final stage. “We’ve proved that we can play in big European games and our fans and our stadium have shown we can handle those big European nights, and that’s what we want more of,” he said earlier this month.

“I’m proud of the lads because we’re not the biggest of squads, so to go week in, week out again and again and again, training and playing Thursdays and Sundays, away from home and away from families has been tough, but in the end we’ve had a great year and we’re ready to go again.”
