Cape Town - England international Declan Rice has responded to rumours linking him with a move to Manchester United, stating that he doesn't think about it.

The West Ham midfielder has been identified as a target at Old Trafford after impressing since breaking into the first team at the London Stadium.

While on international duty with England, with whom he was part of a disappointing defeat to the Czech Republic on Friday, Rice has now commented on the rumours linking him with Man Utd.

"I signed a five-year contract with West Ham last year, which will keep me at the club till I'm 24, and for me this is the best place to be right now," Rice is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror - who claim United could make a £70 million bid for him in January.

"I am playing for a manager who has given me my chance and played me week in, week out.

"I'm improving every week and although I see all this speculation, I don't really think about it too much.

"It's all talk until something happens - and nothing has - so I'm just focused on West Ham, doing my best and making fans happy."
