David Moyes thinks luring Declan Rice away from the Hammers would cost more than £150 million, but the England midfielder is not for sale.
Asked if Rice would command a British record transfer fee of £150m, Moyes said: “If you are interested, well, it will be north of that.
“£100m was cheap last summer. £150m just now would be minimum but he is not for sale. What I do know is that it means there are only certain clubs that could even consider it.”
“I look at what Tottenham did with Harry Kane, albeit in a different way,” said the Scot.
“They said, ‘No, there is a price and if someone wants to pay the price, then we would probably do it. If they don’t, then he’s not going anywhere’ and they have kept him.

“There will be times when players have got the power but we have got Declan on the best part of a three-and-a-half-year contract.
“Just like Tottenham, they have got Kane on a contract and they control what happens.”
Rice’s contract with the Hammers expires in just over two years, with an option for a further 12 months.
The 23-year-old has constantly performed admirably for club and country, garnering attention from Manchester United and previous club Chelsea.
