Redknapp told Sky Sports: "You look at players like Fernandinho in Manchester City and they must see Declan Rice thinking" he's next "because it's so hard to find good players in that position.
& # 39; He has come in from the back of the middle and is now one of the best defensive midfielders in the area. & # 39;
Wounded West Ham star Jack Wilshere was in the studio and he agrees with Redknapp that Rice has a big future ahead of him.
Wilshere told Sky Sports: "I can not believe he is still 19. I had heard clearly about him when I came to the club, but when I saw him on the training field, he has a great future for him.

I am struggling to think of a defensive midfielder who does better than he does in the league.
I do not say that he is the best in the league, but he is definitely on the right track.
& # 39; I certainly see his future playing on that defensive position in the midfield. He is probably the best player of West Ham this season, certainly the most consistent, and with the maturity of his performances at such a young age, he will only get better. & # 39;
Hammer leader Mark Noble praised the teenager and believes that West Ham fans recognize their shape.

Noble told Sky Sports: "I think you could see it, it was not only from the players, but you could also hear from the fans.
& # 39; It has been a special half-year for Declan, he has just signed a new long-term contract and has now reached his first goal.
I will not be surprised if he struggles to sleep tonight. We are all here to see how special he is.
For all young players across the country who want someone to look up, Declan is your man. & # 39;
