A section on West Ham United- Fans on Twitter reacted positively after learning that the club would offer midfielder Declan Rice an improved contract.
Rice has become an important figure in the heart of Hammers midfield and played a key role for the club last season as they avoided relegation from the top division.
He was the subject of Chelsea's interest earlier this summer, but a deal never came as it was unlikely they would meet the reported £ 80m price tag .
According to The Sun the hierarchy is now interested in keeping the 21 year old and ready to double his current wage, worth £ 60,000 a year -week.
Since then, however, he has made immense strides with the club and the board is aware of the need to double his salary in order to keep him happy.
The East London team recently allowed Felipe Anderson to borrow postage and the Portuguese team will pay part of their £ 85,000 a week . Wages.
They have also split up with midfielder Jack Wilshere, who earned £ 100,000 a week freeing up funds to offer Rice an improved deal.
] A new £ 120,000-a-week contract would make Rice the highest earning company with the Hammers, and some of the club's believers believe this is a no-brainer.
@_ DeclanRice Take the new contract and double the wages too, for being Coyi through and through
