Declan Rice has been offered a new contract at West Ham, but he may end up leaving the Hammers for a better pay deal, according to the Daily Mail. The paper reports Rice, 19, turned down a £12,000-a-week deal and the Sun says other defenders on the club’s books, like Fabian Balbuena and Issa Diop, are paid more.
