A few days ago, West Ham United assistant coach Alan Irving talked about the team's midfielder Rice. He said that the England international will definitely stay in West Ham.
This summer window, Rice and Chelsea were contacted by the media, and Mingji Skira even stated that Chelsea and Rice have reached an agreement on personal terms.
However, Irving "cut down trees" on this rumor. When asked if Rice will stay on the team, he said: "Oh, of course it will. Rice is very happy at the club."
"When Noble was absent, he was the captain on the field. You can look at his performance and the way he plays. This shows that he is very focused on the field and he is excellent in training."
