West Ham’s highly-regarded midfielder Declan Rice has committed himself to a long-term amidst ongoing uncertainty over his international future.
The name Declan Rice is one that is often attached to the tug-of-war surrounding his international allegiance – with both Ireland and England in the running as a potential home for him in the future.
And while it remains unclear exactly which direction he will choose to move – it has been revealed today that the 19-year-old has signed a long-term deal with his club West Ham United, one that will see him stay at the club until 2024.
Sky Sports posted the following tweet to their official Twitter account on Friday evening.

Rice has been earning quite a bit of praise for himself and with The Hammers sitting at a respectable ninth in the table, manager Manuel Pellegrini will be delighted to tie down one of his brightest stars ahead of the upcoming January transfer window.
