Rice says ‘bring on Europe’ with West Ham amid fresh Chelsea reports

West Ham finished the season with their best-ever Premier League points total (65) and manager David Moyes told fans after the game: “Make sure you’re all vaccinated and get your passports out, because we’re going Europe!”

It was reported over the weekend that Chelsea have revived their interest in Rice and could move for the 22-year-old England international this summer.

But West Ham have no intention of selling and Rice and he says is looking forward to leading the Hammers into the Europa League next season.

“We’ll go and play anyone,” said Rice. “Thursday nights here next season… it is going to be massive, so let’s build on it.

“It has been amazing to captain the team this season and we’ve got many more good moments to come. It is unbelievable, the gaffer has been top. Everyone has played their part, working day in, day out.”

Moyes and co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold are adamant Rice is not for sale and value him at more than £100million.

Asked about Rice’s future, Moyes said: “I don’t think David Sullivan, David Gold or myself have got any intention of losing Declan Rice.

“We’ve just qualified for Europe, it’s a brilliant achievement. Declan has been a big part of that and we want him to be a big part of what we do next year as well.”
