England international Declan Rice has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea ahead of the January transfer window.
West Ham captain Mark Noble has revealed he hopes Rice will remain with West Ham for the foreseeable future, although the veteran midfielder admitted “you never know” what can happen amid interest from Chelsea.
“He’s still learning his trade, he’ll get much better with experience. I’m hoping it’s here [at West Ham] but in this game you never know,” Noble told TalkSPORT.
“I’m sure he’ll be a top, top player and an even better player in years to come.”
