Could a transfer happen?

Rice is a very promising and talented young footballer whose versatility is going to make Tottenham a better team.

However, given the rivalry between West Ham and Tottenham, the Hammers may not do business with Spurs over the transfer of Rice, although an offer of £35m could change their mind.
