West Ham have tied Declan Rice down to a new long-term contract.

The 19-year-old midfielder, who has made 51 first-team appearances for the Hammers, has signed new terms until 2024, with the club having an option of extending the deal by another year.

The news comes a major boost to West Ham after Rice turned down their initial offer earlier this season.

His previous contract expired at the end of next season, sparking fears the club could have lost one of their brightest talents for nothing.

Joint-chairman David Sullivan said: "Signing Declan to a new long-term contract is something we have been planning for and working round the clock on and I, the board, the manager and Declan himself are all very happy that everything has now been completed."
