Declan Rice signs new long-term contract with West Ham

West Ham: Declan Rice signs new long-term contract

I'm still young, so to put more years on my contract and keep developing here is the best thing for me to do now.

He played for Republic of Ireland development teams from under-16 to under-21, and he made his senior debut in a friendly defeat to Turkey in March 2018.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche admitted dropping Joe Hart for the game against West Ham was a hard decision, but hailed Tom Heaton's professionalism after he came in and kept a clean sheet in a much-needed 2-0 win. The first goal, there's seven passes and they haven't touched the ball, I'm really pleased with that, and Dwight is a player with real quality.

He too was delighted to get the talented youngster tied to the club: "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", he explained". Anderson unleashed a fierce right-footed strike from fully twenty-five yards which simple whistled beyond McCarthy, much to the delight of some 3,000 travelling Hammers supporters.

The 19-year-old shrugged off all of that, however, to get the better of Mario Lemina and Oriol Romeu all night in an accomplished showing, leaving manager Manuel Pellegrini highly impressed.

He has played just 21 games for the Red Devils in all competitions since the start of last season.

"He's a player who always wants to learn more, and he has got such a bright future ahead of him".

With Burnley away next Sunday, the Hammers will be looking to add to their impressive away record so-far, three successive away wins and hopefully the trip to Turf Moor will push the East London side further up the table and accumulate a total of 30 points.

'Not because I think we deserve to be higher, because we started very bad, but I think this team must demonstrate what they can do and we have to continue to prove we are a big club'. But, if those margins go the wrong way, you can be out of a game before you're in it.

"As a group we have a strong mentality, strong character and we don't dwell on the players we are missing".

But the Chilean boss insisted he had never expected more than that, especially given the strength of the Premier League.

Burnley have won just one of their last 12 Premier League games (D2 L9), conceding 30 and scoring just eight in that run.
