Champions League

West Ham will consider Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek transfer bids, says David Moyes

David Moyes concedes West Ham will consider offers for Declan Rice and Tomas Soucek this summer.

The midfield pair have been crucial for the Hammers as they make a surprise challenge for the top four.

Rice has long been tipped for big things while Soucek is the club’s top scorer thus far.

Manchester United and Chelsea have both been linked with the England star while the Czech midfielder will have no shortage of admirers.

Moyes admits West Ham will weigh up any offers they receive, but it will take monumental money to convince them to sell.

“Yes, any club can make offers for players but we’ve not had any big offers,” he claimed.

“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!”

A top four finish will certainly strengthen West Ham’s hand when it comes to retaining their top players.

They have games in hand on the teams above them meaning they remain in control of their destiny.

Moyes though is confident that their forward strides will convince players to stay irrespective of whether they finish in the top four.

“When we signed Tomas Soucek, we brought him in to help us avoid relegation,” he added. “Declan Rice was playing in that relegation team and Jesse has come to help us to get some games.

“To turn around and say we would need to be in the Champions League to keep them, I think all those players would be saying a massive thank you to West Ham for helping them get their careers back on track and for putting them in the right direction.

“I hope we can make the Champions League but if we don’t, I don’t see that has to be the reason that we can keep them.

“The biggest thing any footballer wants to see is the club makes progress and individually they are making progress.”
