Leeds United transfer news: Leeds player ‘expected to leave’, West Ham ‘progressing’ with bid to sign £17.5m Whites target

West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice claims he has ‘never’ experienced a stadium atmosphere like Elland Road.

In January, Leeds’ barnstorming Jack Harrison-inspired victory over West Ham United at the London Stadium was a glimmer of hope amid a tough season.

But earlier in the campaign, the Hammers inflicted a miserable 2-1 defeat upon Leeds at Elland Road as the Whites went a sixth Premier League game without a win.

Though the afternoon ended in victory for Rice’s side, the experience made quite an impression on the England international, who insists the Elland Road atmosphere is something quite unique.

“Going to grounds such as Leeds and Everton last year, they are such tough grounds,” Rice told YouTube show Tubes and Ange’s Golf Life.

“And their players are strong men.

“Then the crowd (get behind them). It’s a tough stadium.

“Like Leeds, I have never seen anything like it. It’s proper.”
