Chelsea Trainee Named On Young Player Award Shortlist



Declan Rice

West Ham United utility player Declan Rice has made the six-man shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year Award which was released on Saturday.

The recently capped England international was rewarded for his superb form for the Hammers this season.

His performances for West Ham United have not gone unnoticed with the big boys in the Premier League.

Major Premier League sides like Manchester United and Manchester City are said to be interested in a move for him ahead of the next transfer window scheduled for this summer.

Declan Rice is a utility player that can play either as a centre back or as a defensive midfielder.

He became an England international last month when he made his debut against Montenegro in what was a Euro 2020 qualifier.

Declan Rice impressed a great deal as England recorded a second successive win at the start of their qualifiers via a 5-1 victory over Montenegro.

He had previously played three games for the Republic of Ireland before deciding to switch to England since he has not represented them in a competitive game.

Declan Rice was a former trainee at West London giants Chelsea before he was released at the age of 14.

He joined West Ham United on a free transfer after his release at Chelsea.
