One player who has seen his future heavily speculated is midfielder Declan Rice.

  1. Collymore has never forgiven the WH fans for goading him when he was at Forest (I was at the game when the supporters sang “Colly, W—— W—— W—- to him. I thought it was a beautiful rendition. Collymore looked like he was going to cry). So not sure anything he says about West Ham ids worth listening to.
