West Ham vice-captain Declan Rice is happy at the London Stadium, with the Hammers not willing to consider offers below £100m for the player, according to Football.London journalist Tom Clark.
There have been more reports in recent days that both Manchester United and Manchester City will make a move for the 22-year-old next year, but Clark says the player is not pushing to leave:
No that wasn’t taken from an article of mine
But what I have been told is he is happy, not for sale & West Ham confirmed to me they’ve never received an offer for him & aren’t open to one
£100m is value WH have put on him David Moyes actually said he’s worth more than £100m

Clark does go on to say in another tweet, though, that it doesn’t necessarily mean Rice will stay put, but it is the current position of both the midfielder and the club itself.
While the two Manchester clubs are believed to have made the England international their primary target for next summer, Chelsea and Liverpool have also been credited with an interest in the player.
However, there have been no official bids for Rice in recent months and West Ham supporters will be hoping it stays that way for a while longer yet.
