    Moyes said: "Jesse wanted to come here, right from the start. When I was talking to him he wanted to come to West Ham. He saw it as a really good place for him. I think he'll have seen what we're trying to do.

    "He's joined a good group of players as well. We've got international players and I'm hoping we can add to that in the coming transfer window. The job is to try to add to that.

    "But I would hope Jesse sees this as a good place if it's possible to be done, and if we think that we want to do it at the end of the season."

    Ex-Manchester United star Owen Hargreaves has urged his former club to sign West Ham star Declan Rice and Leicester ace Wesley Fofana in the summer transfer window.

    Hargreaves believes Rice is better than Scott McTominay in midfield and claims Fofana is like a "Ferrari" at the back.

    He told Premier League productions: "‘I think Rice’s upside is off the charts. He has the potential to be anything and a lot better. I think he plays within himself at West Ham.

    "People don’t realise how big he is. He’s 6’3, so he looks like a centre-back but he’s actually really good technically. I’m not a big fan of players who just play in there and pass it around, you have to stop players too.

    "Declan Rice doesn’t have to dictate the game for Manchester United, he can pass to the players who can make the difference and be good defensively.

    "I’d love to see Manchester United get Fofana. He’s a Ferrari, honestly. I’d throw whatever they’ve got left in the bank to get him. He’s a fabulous player."
