West Ham United star Declan Rice will have to push for a move next summer if he is to leave the London Stadium, according to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

West Ham transfer news – Declan Rice

Seconds the guardianRice has indicated he wants to leave West Ham and has no intention of signing a new contract after reiterating his desire to play in the Champions League.

The report suggests that Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are interested in the Hammers captain, while Newcastle United could also be in the race for his signature if they qualify for the elite club competition of Europe

Transfer pundit Dean Jones has told GIVEMESPORT that Liverpool are also interested in striking a deal for Rice.

Real Madrid are another club mulling a move for the central midfielder after he has been put on the radar of the La Liga giants.

Although Rice’s £62,000-a-week contract expires in the summer of 2024, West Ham have the option to extend the deal by a further 12 months, meaning they are not necessarily under pressure to sanction his exit this season stage.

What has Dharmesh Sheth said about rice?

Sheth believes Rice will only be able to seal his exit from West Ham next summer if he wants to force a transfer.

The journalist believes that the 23-year-old needs to hold discussions with the East London hierarchy about his future.

Sheth told GIVEMESPORT: “If he wants to continue next summer, I think it will probably have to be driven by the same player.

“I think he’s going to start having to make noise at West Ham and say ‘I need to play in the Champions League’. If we can get it at West Ham, great, I’ll stay because I’m going to play in the Champions League at West Ham.”

“But that doesn’t seem likely to happen before next season, given the position West Ham United are in.”

How did Rice perform in the World Cup?

England may have crashed out of the World Cup after suffering a 2-1 defeat to France in the quarter-finals on Saturday, but there is no doubt that Rice played a key role in Qatar.

Sofascore stats indicate he averaged 2.2 interceptions, 1.2 tackles and a sack per start, making the Three Lions tough to break down.

The data also shows that Rice boasted a 94 per cent pass accuracy ratio during the tournament, emphasizing that he was comfortable in possession while starting each of England’s games.

The 39-cap star was impressive during the Three Lions’ loss to France and The Telegraph gave it an 8/10, which was only bettered by Bukayo Saka.
