Man Utd target Declan Rice insists he's happy at West Ham

Declan Rice insists he's happy at West Ham.

The midfielder continues to be linked with Manchester United.

But he told the Mirror: “I've signed a long-term, five-year contract last season and if I didn't want to sign it, I wouldn't have done it.

“It makes me a West Ham player for the next five years and I'll be giving my best for the team and the supporters.

“All I can do is to keep my head down, play my football and I'm not taking any notice of what's going on outside.

“The manager keeps emphasising to us that we are a top club with a big-team mentality and we've started the season that way.

“We see how the boss works, and we know what he's done at Manchester City , Real Madrid and Villarreal. He's a top manager and all the lads respect him because we know he'll take us in the right direction.

“As a club, we want to get into Europe and his track record says he usually gets there. If we make it this season, that's a bonus – but we need to keep pushing."
