West Ham warn Chelsea off Rice

West Ham United are insisting Declan Rice is not for sale.

Chelsea are attempting to open talks with West Ham for the England midfielder.

Football.London says the Hammers have kept a stern resolve when it comes to hanging on to Rice and they have long insisted that the 23-year-old will not be sold for anything less than their £150million asking price.

Chelsea remain interested in Rice, but the Hammers are 'adamant' he is not for sale.

They also reported the England international is unsure about signing a contract extension as he considers a future away from the London Stadium.

Rice does have links with the Blues after joining their academy as a seven year-old. He became a Hammer at the age of 14 after Chelsea released him.
