Declan Rice bids considered

Chelsea have been linked with a move for Declan Rice

West Ham boss Moyes has admitted that offers will be considered for Rice, as well as Tomas Soucek.

“Yes, any club can make offers for players but we’ve not had any big offers,” he said when asked about the two players.

“I hope we don’t get any but if we do, like any other club, we would consider them.

“I don’t know where the Bank of England is for Tomas Soucek but I’ve said with Declan, it would take the Bank of England and the Royal Bank of Scotland to get him.

“It will have to be the Bank of Czech as well for Tomas!”
