'Come and play at Tottenham': Spurs coach tells 'outstanding' West Ham player he'd love to sign him

Tottenham coach Yaya Toure has filmed a YouTube video with West Ham United and England midfielder Declan Rice.

For Goal, Toure and Rice looked at the Hammers captain’s collection of shirts from his fledgling career so far.

Rice was clearly starstruck by the legendary Premier League midfielder, who had as much pace, power and technique as anyone who has ever played in an English top flight engine room.

In July, it was announced that Toure had taken a full-time coaching role within Tottenham’s academy after spending time with the club since December in an unofficial capacity.

Toure tells Rice to join Tottenham

In the video, Toure and Rice look at shirts the Englishman has picked up from two Spurs players – Harry Kane and Heung-min Son.

Toure said: “Harry Kane – Tottenham! You have to come and play at Tottenham and you have two (shirts) on there!”

Rice replied: “I know, Son, what a player…”

Rice may well be on the move with his contract situation unresolved and the World Cup potentially boosting his profile even more – but he clearly loves West Ham.

There is next to no chance he is moving to Spurs, and Toure made his comments with a laugh and a smile.

The ‘outstanding‘ Rice will be looking to help England scoop World Cup glory in Qatar when the tournament gets underway later this month, alongside Three Lions skipper Kane, who won the Golden Boot at the last iteration of the tournament.
