West Ham are keen to try and tie him down to a new contract in order to maximise his value and potentially keep him with Claret & Hugh have revealed that the Hammers are preparing a ‘historic’ new contract offer.
His ability to break up play is among the best in the league, but this season he has shown a new string to his bow by driving more with the ball and registering three goals and three assists in all competitions.
The fact he is almost always available is a huge boost too, because there would be a huge gap in the team without him.
A new deal would give renewed confidence that he will stay for a little bit longer, but would also put the Hammers in the driving seat for any potential negotiations for a transfer away. It would be a great move if they can pull it off, but it remains to be seen if Rice has any interest.
