Chelsea and Man Utd target Rice reaffirms West Ham commitment

Declan Rice insists he is happy at West Ham United and is confident he can achieve his ambitions at the club.

Rice has been constantly linked with a move to Chelsea and Man Utd and has reportedly stalled over signing a new contract. But ahead of Thursday night's Europa League clash with Rapid Vienna, Rice reaffirmed his commitment to West Ham.

"We've spoken about it lots in the past," said the 22-year-old.

"Everyone knows how I feel about West Ham and how I feel about playing under the manager and what it's like playing with the group of players I'm playing with. I feel you can see in my performances nothing's up, nothing's concerning me. I'm playing with a smile on my face, I'm going out there, I'm leading the team."

"I think you could see a difference if I wasn't going out there and giving 100 percent but every time I'm putting on the shirt - I've got the armband on at the moment - my only objective is to go out there and give everything for the club and get three points."

"You can see how happy I am on the pitch, I love playing for this team and this manager. Honestly, it's such a great place to be around at the moment. With the results and how well we're doing, it makes it that bit more special."

The England international's contract with the Hammers is set to expire in the summer of 2024.
