West Ham boss Pellegrini: Rice ready to walk into England midfield

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini says Declan Rice is ready to walk into England's midfield.

Pellegrini hailed his starlet Rice as a complete player.

He said: “Yes. I think he is ready to play for England and I think that we are just starting the development of him as a player.

“But at this moment his performances are better than every holding midfielder. I am talking about the English players.

“Maybe there are other foreign players in big teams that are also playing well like Fernandinho but I repeat we are just starting, seeing what will be with Declan in the future."
