The England international is currently out with a knee injury, but The Athletic report that there is still a chance he could play again before the campaign is done.

Rice has been a key player for West Ham so they’ll no doubt hope to get him back as soon as possible in their bid for a top four place.

David Moyes’ side have been big over-achievers so far this season and it could be that they’ll have it in them to clinch a Champions League place.

Having Rice back would certainly help the Hammers’ cause, but they might also do well not to rush him back.

The 22-year-old is an elite young talent and his fine form has seen him linked with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea ahead of this summer.
