West Ham United will not sell Declan Rice for anything less than 'Bank of England money' this summer, according to manager David Moyes.

West Ham United manager David Moyes has insisted that Declan Rice will not be allowed to leave for anything less than 'Bank of England money' during the summer transfer window.

Rice has enjoyed a breakthrough campaign with the Hammers and has been persistently linked with a move across the capital to join Chelsea.

A recent report claimed that the Blues were hoping to strike a part-exchange deal involving Ross Barkley and Michy Batshuayi for Rice, but Moyes has affirmed that it would take a gargantuan offer for West Ham to sanction a sale.

"I am confident he will be here because he is under contract, but whatever club you are at, even the biggest clubs sell their best players at the right value," Moyes said in quotes attributed to Sky Sports News.

"My intention is not to sell Declan at all, my intention is to keep him. We can't stop other clubs making offers but I'm guessing you (the media) will speculate, but the truth is we have had no offers for anybody.

"He is a really good player and I see him helping us, I hope that he sees what we are trying to add which will make him excited about being at West Ham.

"Declan was reassured when he signed a five-year contract, when you do that you decide you are committed to the club. If somebody then turns up and offers you a bundle of cash, that's the club's decision.

"I think Declan is the future captain of West Ham going forward. When Mark Noble comes to an end I think it will be Declan Rice. We have no intention of letting him go but if it does come it will need to be 'Bank of England' money."

Rice, who has started every Premier League game for the Hammers this term, still has just under four years left to run on his current deal at the London Stadium.
