David Moyes has provided update on Declan Rice’s injury saying he is making good progress in his efforts to rejoin West Ham’s bid for Champions League qualification.
England midfielder Rice will remain on the sidelines for the time being as a result of the knee injury he sustained on international duty last month, but his club coach Moyes said: “Declan’s been training really well.
“It’s all gym-based at the moment. He’s working really hard in the gym because he wants to get back as quick as he can.
“He’s obviously got other reasons, he knows he’s got the Euros coming up in the summer as well.
“As you can imagine, for any club to lose Declan Rice would be a big blow, but at the moment we’ve been able to carry it and I hope we can continue to do so.”
West Ham visit Newcastle on Saturday and victory on Tyneside would move them above Leicester, who are in FA Cup semi-final action on Sunday, and into third place ahead of next weekend’s home game with fifth-placed Chelsea.
