West Ham United reportedly shelve talks over a contract extension for Declan Rice until the end of the season despite reported interest from Manchester United.

West Ham United have reportedly put talks over a contract extension for Declan Rice on hold until the end of the season.

Rice was offered a new deal by the Hammers in October but turned it down as he holds out for a higher basic wage.

The 19-year-old currently earns £3,000 per week and is understood to have been offered a £15,000-a-week contract with performance-related bonuses which could have raised that figure to around £40,000 per week.

The Evening Standard reports that West Ham will now shelve further talks until next summer, with Rice under contract at the club until 2020.

The Hammers also have the ability to extend that stay by a further 12 months due to a clause in his current contract, and therefore are in no rush to tie the youngster down to a long-term deal just yet.

Rice's performances this season have seen him linked with a move to one of the 'big six', with Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur thought to be monitoring his progress.
