CHELSEA linked Declan Rice has reportedly told friends he has played his last league match for West Ham.

Rice is one of the most sought-after young midfielders in world football and his next move is a subject of much speculation, with a number of top clubs very much interested in a deal for the player.

Rice’s current deal with the Irons runs until the summer of 2024 and the club have the option of another 12 months. But the summer window offers West Ham the last realistic chance of securing a mammoth fee – of £100million-plus – for their prize asset –

The Football Insider has claimed that Rice has told Friends that he has played his last League game for the Hammers.

The reports adds his plan is for the Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina next week (7 June) to be his Irons swansong as he closes in on a summer move.

Harry Redknapp recently claimed West Ham are plenty big enough for Rice and has warned the midfielder that the grass is not always greener elsewhere.

“I think he’s still young,” Redknapp told The Evening Standard.

“I’d like to see him have a couple more years at West Ham. It’s a great stadium with 60,000 people every week.

“He’s early mega money. Where do you go?…

“He’s probably happy there. He’s a big fish at West Ham. The fans love him.

“Does he need a move at this particular time?”
