Rice insists he's a happy Hammer – despite being linked with a £70million move to United.
Rice said: “I signed a five year contract with West Ham last year, which will keep me at club till I'm 24, and for me this is the best place to be right now.
“I am playing for a manager who has given me my chance and played me week in week out.
“I'm improving every week and although I see all this speculation, I don't really think about it too much.
“It's all talk until something happens – and nothing has - so I'm just focussed on West Ham, doing my best and making fans happy."
