Report: West Ham set to table wage-doubling deal for hot prospect after transfer hunt
West Ham are set to table a new deal for hot prospect Declan Rice which would see his wages double if he signed, according to a report.
The Mirror claim on the live transfer blog on their website that the Hammers are keen on tying down the 18-year-old defender down to the club and are willing to increase his wages by two times the amount he is currently earning.
The report of a new deal comes after Football Insider exclusively revealed that David Moyes had turned down a handful of offers for the youngster, including from former side Sunderland, as he looks to keep the versatile centre back at the London Stadium for the second half of the campaign.
Football Insider also revealed back in December that the Hammers had entered discussions with Rice over extending his deal with the club, having broken through the youth ranks, and the latest report suggests that a new contract is close to being penned.
Rice has been a revelation for the club this season, with 17 appearances across all competitions under his belt, 12 of which have come in the Premier League, including coming on in the last few minutes of Saturday’s 4-1 thrashing away at Huddersfield.
In other West Ham transfer news, the club can expect to receive a £20million bid from their Premier League rivals for one of their star attackers.
