Follow Declan Rice

West Ham United snapped up Declan Rice as a schoolboy after he was released by Chelsea, and the Blues' loss has been very much the Hammers' gain.

A tall, confident player, Rice excelled as a scholar at the Academy of Football, captaining the U23s to promotion from Premier League 2 Division 2 in 2016/17.

A versatile centre-back or defensive midfielder, Rice made his Premier League debut at Burnley in the final game of the 2016/17 season, before establishing himself as a regular in the Hammers' starting XI during the 2017/18 campaign.
