Declan Rice has been named as one of the world's top 20 most valuable players under the age of 21 in a new survey.

According to the 2019 Soccerex Under 21 report, Rice is the world's 15th most valuable young player with a value of ‎€39million - which, given some recent transfer fees and valuations would appear to be a little on the low side.

Rice is one of six English players listed in the Soccerex index, with Dortmund's Jadon Sancho - at second - leading the way with an estimated value of ‎€120.3million.

He is followed by Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold in fifth spot and Manchester City attacking midfielder Phil Foden in 14th. The final two English players listed in the index are Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon and Wandsworth-born Callum Hudson-Odio, currently with Chelsea.
