Declan Rice will not feature in West Ham’s Monday night clash with Wolves after suffering a knee injury on England duty last week, according to reports.
Rice, 22, is enjoying a terrific season for the Hammers, with his solid performances in the middle of the park helping them keep pace in a surprise top-four race.
He has also become a mainstay in the England side and is almost certain to earn a place in Gareth Southgate’s squad for this summer’s delayed Euro 2020 tournament.
Yet according to talkSPORT, the youngster has been dealt a major blow after picking up an injury during the latest international break with England.
Rice is said to be undergoing further tests, but he is expected to miss more than one match for David Moyes’ side.
That will come as a huge frustration for Moyes, who is chasing an unlikely top-four finish amid a superb season at the West Ham helm.
Rice has been one of his most consistent performers this term, featuring in all 29 of their Premier League fixtures so far.
His impressive displays have reportedly caught Manchester United and Chelsea’s eye, with both clubs being tipped to sign him in the summer transfer window.
And Moyes has admitted that West Ham will consider any offer they receive for Rice, along with fellow midfielder Tomas Soucek.
“Yes, any club can make offers for players but we've not had any big offers,” he said.

“I hope we don't get any but if we do, like any other club, we would consider them.
“I don't know where the Bank of England is for Tomas Soucek but I've said with Declan, it would take the Bank of England and the Royal Bank of Scotland to get him.
“It will have to be the Bank of Czech as well for Tomas!”
Rice is not the only injury concern West Ham have heading into their clash with Wolves, as Angelo Ogbonna and Andriy Yarmolenko are also unavailable through injury.
