Declan Rice's transfer admission throws curveball to Man Utd and Arsenal summer plans
Declan Rice has thrown a curveball at Manchester United and Arsenal by admitting he may yet stay at West Ham beyond this summer.
Rice captained the Hammers to winning the Europa Conference League on Wednesday night. Jarrod Bowen scored a last-minute winner to beat Fiorentina in the final of the competition in Prague, with Rice having been at his imperious best.
The 2-1 victory means that the England international became the first West Ham player since Bobby Moore in 1965 to lift a European trophy. But there has been intense speculation about his future, with a belief that he will depart the London Stadium this summer.
United and Arsenal are understood to be the frontrunners for his signature, with the Gunners having been set to open talks with the Hammers from the end of the campaign. Now though, it appears that Rice is playing down those links with a move.
