Declan Rice transfer news – odds: Midfielder set for final year at West Ham after 'gentleman's agreement' with Chelsea | The Sun

DECLAN RICE is set to stay at West Ham for one more season before packing his bags and leaving east London.

The midfielder is odds on with Betfair to be staying put this window, with a reported 'gentleman's agreement' being made between club and player for the 23-year-old to leave this time next year, with Chelsea the probable destination.

Rice still has two years left on his contract, with the option of a further year so the Hammers aren't in a position where they need to sell.

The club have also offered him two new contracts, both of which the England star has rejected.

It's thought that Chelsea are likely to be in pole position to sign the England international this time next year.

The Blues have long been linked with the midfielder who they released as a 14-year-old.

However, there's plenty of competition for the England international.

Reports claim Manchester City and Manchester United are also targeting the talented 23-year-old this summer.

And Betfair think Liverpool and Newcastle are also possible destinations.

Betfair are offering odds of 4/11 for Rice not to a sign or agree a contract with any other club this summer.

If West Ham DO decide to sell this window – Chelsea are at the front of the queue at odds of 15/8.

Manchester United at 4/1 lead Manchester City at 14/1 in the market.

Erik ten Hag's side are desperate to sign a midfielder this summer and it's looking increasingly unlikely that their proposed move for Frenkie de Jong will go through.

Man City were firmly in the mix before they announced the signing of Rice's England teammate Kalvin Phillips from Leeds earlier in the window.

Liverpool and Newcastle are both outsiders at 22/1 and 25/1 respectively.
