Declan Rice

West London side Chelsea have been indirectly handed more time to be able to secure the signing of West Ham United versatile defender Declan Rice as the club are yet to hand him a new deal.

According to reports, negotiations between the player’s representatives and the club have stopped with the London side hoping that talks could resume in the next summer for a new deal for the player.

However, Chelsea are keen on having the services of Declan Rice which means they have got time to be able to lure the player into considering a move away from West Ham.

Declan Rice’s current contract with West Ham expires in 2020 as negotiations for a new and improved deal has yet to yield any result.

Although, the Hammers are reported to have an option of extending Declan Rice’s contract by another year according to the terms in his contract which makes the club board confident of sealing a deal for the player before 2020.

Declan Rice currently earns £3,000 a week at West Ham and he is only asking for a rise to £30,000n per-week which is seeming difficult for the club.

Meanwhile, the Blues will be willing to meet the player’s demand and also add more than the £30,000 a week.

Tammy Abraham won a penalty for Chelsea in added time of the UEFA Super Cup game with Liverpool.

Jorginho scored that penalty to make the scoreline 2-2 and take the game into penalties.
