West Ham have this morning confirmed that they’re doing all they will to blow any bids for Declan Rice fully out of the water.
They’ve provided the captain a £200,000 take care of a clause to make sure that a rising scale is concerned to match inflation.
And the deal shall be for eight years because the board continues to do the whole lot humanly doable to maintain him on the London Stadium.
The information was given by Jim White on Talksport earlier and as is all the time the case we checked with our personal sources on the club.
And we had been instantly instructed that was certainly the case and that the club was doing all it may to successfully preserve the participant on the London Stadium for the rest of his profession.
The reply we got was a easy “Sure” once we requested if the small print as given by White had been actually appropriate.
They embrace the suggestion that the deal may go to 10 years which might make him the brand new Mr West Ham following the retirement of his enormous mentor and buddy Mark Noble.
White had mentioned: “Declan Rice has been provided an eight-year deal at West Ham United price £200,000 per week on a rising scale to match inflation. An eight yr deal, price £200,000 per week. At this stage he’s exhibiting no inclination to signal it.
“There’s a perception that the eight-year deal may turn out to be a ten-year deal, if Declan and his folks needed such a deal price £200,000 per week.
“So would they promote? There’s a perception inside the Declan Rice camp that he may get between £300-400,000 per week elsewhere, whether or not that’s true or not stays to be seen.”
