West Ham United fans speculate after Declan Rice appears to delete tweet

With social media being a regular platform for footballers to interact with fans, they can sometimes share too much information.

Declan Rice has made headlines for West Ham United this season, for his performances on the pitch and the contract rumours behind the scenes.

In a recent interview with The Times, the 19-year-old claimed that he is hopeful of agreeing a new deal with the Hammers.

It is believed that the East London outfit have offered him a basic salary of £15,000 and the promise of bonuses, but his camp are said to be holding out for a higher figure.

The failure to reach an agreement has made a lot of West Ham fans nervous, and now a spanner has been thrown into the works amid reports that Samir Nasri is on his way to the London Stadium.

According to Monday’s London Evening Standard, the former Manchester City midfielder underwent a medical ahead of a £80,000-a-week deal.

The rumoured salary has caused some fans to question why the club will not bump up Rice’s wages.

A Reddit user posted a screengrab of an alleged tweet from the midfielder, who uploaded a ‘sleep’ emoji.

According to the fan, Rice swiftly deleted the post, and now supporters are reading into the reasons behind it.
