Declan Rice set for improved West Ham deal
Wednesday, April 25, 2018
West Ham United are reportedly set to offer Declan Rice a new and improved contract after a stellar breakthrough season.
The defender, who retained the coveted Young Hammer of the Year Award at a glitzy ceremony on Wednesday night, has made 27 appearances for the first team this season.
Aged just 19, Rice has played in a variety of positions already for both Slaven Bilic and his successor, David Moyes.
And the Evening Standard claim the club will offer the Republic of Ireland international an improved deal, just over a year after he signed fresh terms with the Hammers.
His current deal would see him stay at the London Stadium until 2020 but, with the club still embroiled in a relegation battle, new terms are being worked on.
Rice made his debut at the end of last season, and has recently started to feature more consistently from the start with Winston Reid and James Collins out.
