West Ham not worried about losing Declan Rice

West Ham United is not worried about losing midfielder Declan Rice in the summer.

The England international is heavily being linked with a move away from the cub in the summer with both the Manchester clubs and Chelsea said to be interested in his services.

Speaking to Daily Mail, the Hammers manager David Moyes feels that participating in Europe will convince the player to stay has been a key member of the squad.

"I don't think it will be difficult to keep hold of him because he is under contract.  So we don't have a concern about that. I believe that Declan will stay because he is part of something that he is growing in. He is one of the new group of players, him and Tomas Soucek and Vladimir Coufal.

"Declan is in a position where people will be looking at him. He is a terrific boy. He conducts himself really well. I want him to stay as long as he wants to stay. I like him. He is a really big part of what we do. Like all players, I'm not selling any of them if I have my way.

"Through my journey as a manager, I had to sell Wayne Rooney at one point and you have people who are super talented and it can happen but if it did, it would only be for extraordinary money. We wouldn't want it to happen because we value Declan too much. I enjoy working with him and I think his development here will be really important,” Moyes said.

Rice is part of the Gareth Southgate squad for the Euros with Moyes having the feeling that the player will have an impact on the England national team in the tournament.
