Chelsea transfer target Declan Rice won’t leave West Ham for Chelsea during the January transfer window, according to former West Ham striker Teddy Sheringham.

Transfer expert Ian McGarry had claimed Chelsea will sell or loan Kepa Arrizabalaga and Antonio Rudiger to fund a January move for Rice but Sheringham doesn’t see Rice leaving in January.

“He’s [Moyes has] done very well to keep of Declan Rice,” Sheringham said, according to Daily Express.

“I think he’s his main man at the moment and he has that English mentality. He looks like he’s taken over from Mark Noble a bit.

“Not running the place, but he understands what it takes to be a leader, what it takes to win football matches.

“And he’s organising nicely around the place and he’s got a lot of foreign lads that you’ve got to help acclimatise and explain how the game is in England.

“Things are looking good at the moment, so long may that continue.

“Declan Rice is a top player and when you’ve got top players in your football club, you sometimes have to fight people off to keep hold of them.

“If he’s happy and he’s enjoying his football, then why would you want to move?

“I think that at this moment in time they’re fifth in the table, things are looking good, he’s enjoying his football. So why would he want to leave?”
