West Ham dealt hammer blow with Declan Rice Injury

Declan Rice is set to miss the rest of the season after the midfielder suffered an injury during England’s European qualifiers last week.

The 22-year- old picked up the injury in England’s win over Poland. Sources have said that Rice’s season could be over. West Ham are hopeful Rice will be out for a maximum of six weeks, but other sources have said the best-case scenario is Rice will only miss three weeks.

Rice has been in fine form for England and West Ham this season and has been interested in other clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea.

Rice’s ability to retrieve possession and dictate play from deep has received praises from England Manager Gareth Southgate and West Ham manager David Moyes.

The Scot said West ham could sell Declan Rice, but it will take a mammoth offer for West ham to consider it.

Yes, any club can make offers for players, but we’ve not had any big offers,’ Moyes said.

‘I hope we don’t get any but if we do, like any other club, we would consider them.

‘I don’t know where the Bank of England is for Tomas Soucek but I’ve said with Declan, it would take the Bank of England and the Royal Bank of Scotland to get him. It will have to be the Bank of Czech as well for Tomas!’

West Ham plays Wolves tonight and will be without Rice in a game that could have huge ramifications on West Ham’s quest for European football next season. The veteran Mark Noble, who is due to leave the club at the end of next season, is in line to deputize for Rice against Wolves.
