Chelsea, Man Utd target Rice reaffirms commitment to West Ham

Declan Rice has reaffirmed his commitment to West Ham United.

The England midfielder has been a target for Chelsea and Manchester United.

"We've spoken about it lots in the past," said the 22-year-old ahead of West Ham's Europa League clash Rapid Vienna. "Everyone knows how I feel about West Ham and how I feel about playing under the manager and what it's like playing with the group of players I'm playing with.

"I feel you can see in my performances nothing's up, nothing's concerning me. I'm playing with a smile on my face, I'm going out there, I'm leading the team.

"I think you could see a difference if I wasn't going out there and giving 100 per cent but every time I'm putting on the shirt - I've got the armband on at the moment - my only objective is to go out there and give everything for the club and get three points

"With tomorrow night on the horizon, the only thought on my mind is to go out there and put on a performance for the fans and get the win.

"I think we can achieve good things. Last season we finished two points off the Champions League and easily could have got into that. The other night, in the League Cup, we knocked out Manchester United.

"The mentality around the place is that every competition we're entering is one we can go on and win for sure. We want to win it.

"You can see how happy I am on the pitch, I love playing for this team and this manager. Honestly, it's such a great place to be around at the moment. With the results and how well we're doing, it makes it that bit more special."
