Rice also fuelled speculation of a transfer to London rivals Chelsea after admitting he would like to link up with England team-mate Mason Mount at club level again after the pair came through the Blues’ academy.
‘I’d love to play with him at club level again,’ Rice told Copa 90 when asked about Mount.
‘One thing we’ve always said as kids we’d love to play with each other at club and international level but obviously you never know because of different paths and things like that.’
