Newcastle United have been linked strongly with a transfer move for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, and it seems he spent some time chatting to two of the club’s coaches after the game at the weekend.
Newcastle and West Ham drew 1-1 in their Premier League match, and afterwards Rice was spotted having a friendly exchange with Magpies coaches Graeme Jones and Jason Tindall.
This is according to a report from the Daily Mail, which comes amid ongoing transfer rumours about Rice’s asking price and potential suitors for the summer.
Newcastle look likely to be in the mix for the England international if they can offer him Champions League football, though at the moment it seems Arsenal and Chelsea are favourites.
