3 Chelsea talents who should follow Declan Rice to West Ham

Declan Rice admits he is glad Chelsea released him, he's now starring for West Ham.

West Ham defender Declan Rice reacts during the Carabao Cup Fourth Round match between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United at Wembley Stadium on October 25, 2017 in London, England.

West Ham youngster Declan Rice played a starring role at the weekend as the club claimed a draw away to Chelsea.

Rice was a former Chelsea trainee and released at just 14. He admits now this has turned out to be a blessing for him.

Chelsea's are bidding to win a fifth successive FA Youth Cup, but despite this their talented kids have struggled to make the first team.

Here are three more Chelsea talents who could benefit from a move to West Ham, where they may see their first team chances fast-tracked...

Tammy Abraham

Striker Tammy Abraham has found it tough on loan at Swansea City this season but it would be a mistake to write him off.

The youngster has already represented England and scored more than 20 goals in the Championship last season.

A permanent switch to West Ham could give Abraham the stability he needs to become one of England's top strikers, if he continues to find his path blocked at Chelsea.

Matt Miazga

Centre-back Matt Miazga recently earned a first team cap for USA, but he is well down the pecking order at Chelsea.

He is out on loan at Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem, who sit seventh in the Eredivisie.

If the past record of former Chelsea loanees at Vitesse is anything to go by, the Blues won't be ready to propel him into the first team yet.

Mario Pasalic

Mario Pasalic of AC Milan celebrates after scoring goal 1-1 during the Serie A match between Pescara Calcio and AC Milan at Adriatico Stadium on April 2, 2017 in Pescara, Italy.

Midfield star Mario Pasalic signed for Chelsea in 2014, but he is yet to make an appearance at the club.

He has enjoyed loan spells at Monaco and AC Milan, and he is currently at Russian side Spartak Moscow, where he has scored five times this season.

West Ham should give him a shot to succeed in the Premier League by making an offer this summer.
