West Ham United Midfielder Focused On Season But Hopes To Leave Next Summer.

Declan Rice, a midfielder for West Ham United, has been linked with a move away from the club this summer. However, he eventually stayed with the Premier League club, who refused to let him go. The Englishman, on the other hand, appears to be living on borrowed time at the London Stadium.

Declan Rice, according to rumours, has his sights set on leaving West Ham at the conclusion of the season, despite his commitment to aiding the Hammers this season.

According to reports, the midfielder is dissatisfied with the London club's £100 million asking price. It kept him from signing a new contract with a bigger club this summer.

During the transfer window, a number of clubs, including Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester United, were said to be interested in signing the West Ham United midfielder. The exorbitant price tag for Rice, on the other hand, turned them all away.

Declan Rice has established himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League in recent seasons. Last season, the England international put in a lot of good displays for the Hammers, recording a total of 35 appearances in all competitions.

He has appeared in all three Premier League games for West Ham United this season, recording one assist. His current deal with the club runs out in the summer of 2024, but he has an option to extend it.

West Ham United made a strong start to the new Premier League season, picking up a couple of good results to give themselves a lift. In their first match, David Moyes' side overcame Newcastle United 4-2 before going on to beat Leicester City 4-1. Last Saturday, they were held to a 2-2 tie by Crystal Palace.

With seven points, the Hammers are now in second place in the table, two points behind league leaders Tottenham Hotspur. After the international break, they will face Southampton in their fourth Premier League match of the season on September 11.

In the 2020-21 season, West Ham United finished sixth in the table. This season, the Hammers have qualified for the Europa League. This season, Moyes will be trying to help his squad go one further and secure a coveted Champions League position.
