DECLAN RICE has rejected a third contract offer from West Ham and is ‘open to a move this summer’, according to reports.
But boss David Moyes reckons Rice, 23, is now worth “north of £150million”.
The England international has two years left on his deal, with an option to extend for a further year.
But Hammers fans will be concerned by the latest reports that he is ready to move on.
Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano tweeted: “Declan Rice has turned down third contract offer at West Ham.
“There’s still no agreement – Rice has always been committed, but he’s now open to a move this summer.
“West Ham insist he’s untouchable as David Moyes said – but Declan Rice won’t sign a new deal.”
The classy midfielder has led the Hammers to another magnificent season.
Rice and his teammates produced a stunning display in Lyon to reach the Europa League semi-finals last week.
They remain just five points from fifth in the Premier League and Rice has played all but two of their 33 games.

Rivals Chelsea and Manchester United are both said to be in hot pursuit of the star.
Asked if a British-record fee of £150m is Rice’s current value, gaffer Moyes said: “If you are interested, well, it will be north of that.
“£100m was cheap last summer. £150m just now would be minimum but he is not for sale.
“What I do know is that it means there are only certain clubs that could even consider it.”
