Moyes denies Chelsea and Man-Utd offers for Rice

Sun 17 January 2021 | 11:29

Despite being linked to the Premier League giants on several occasions, Rice is yet to receive a transfer offer from both clubs.

West Ham

midfielder,

Declan Rice

, is yet to receive an offer from either

Manchester United

or

Chelsea

, confirmed Hammers boss, David Moyes.

"They're not true [rumours of a bid], we've had no contact from either of those clubs regarding Declan and we wouldn't want any anyway,"

Moyes

told 

Amazon.

"He's doing great for us, he's a big leader now, he's taken a lot of the weight off Mark Noble. He's turning out to be a really good player but also a really good boy and good around the club."  

The Englishman, who joined West Ham in 2014 after leaving Chelsea academy, has taken part in all of the team’s games this season.

Moyes later talked about their efforts to find a new striker during the current transfer season, adding:

"We've already made big inquiries and offers for players at clubs, which have not been accepted or obviously we would have signed somebody."

"It is not as if we are not trying to that, we have tried. But I need to get players who I think can make a difference and I want it to be someone who I think can help us.”

"If I don't then I might need to look short-term, just to get me through to get me another player, but if not then I will use the young players or I will have to try and use someone else from the squad and see how we can do it.”

"But if Mick [Michail Antonio] can gain his real form from where he has been in recent months then that will be a big thing for us and today he is getting closer. He got another 90 minutes, he got a goal, it's what we really missed and we are glad to have him back."
