According to West Ham legend Frank McAvennie, Chelsea transfer target Declan Rice is average in midfield but a quality player in defence.

McAvennie believes the 21 year old England international is being used in the wrong position at West Ham.

“I think Declan Rice is the best centre-half they have at West Ham but they keep putting him in the midfield,” McAvennie told Football Insider.

“He is not the best midfield player, he’s turned into Eric Dier! Passing sideways.

“Declan would make a good centre-half, he has that ability to defend and a lot of energy.”
