Declan Rice is expected to reject West Ham's latest contract offer but the club continue to insist he is not leaving in the summer transfer window, sources told ESPN.

The 23-year-old has turned down multiple extensions which would make him the highest paid player in West Ham's history on £200,000-a-week.

Sources told ESPN that West Ham's latest attempt involves a contract which could run for up to eight years, potentially tying him to the east London side until 2030.

Although he could receive a considerable wage increase, Rice is thought to have shown little interest in signing fresh terms given his existing agreement runs until 2024.

The club also have an option to extend Rice's deal by a year and, significantly, that can be triggered at any time. So, given Rice effectively has three years remaining on his deal, West Ham feel in a strong position to rebuff any interested clubs in their star player.

West Ham boss David Moyes has previously suggested it would take £150 million for the club to even consider an offer. Sources told ESPN that a bid of £120m would test their resolve but either way, West Ham see Rice as a vital part of their future as they look to build on another promising season in which they are fighting for a top six finish and reached the Europa League semifinals.
