West Ham United

Oxford pushing for Hammers exit

10th January 2019, 11:45 by Tom McGarry

Reece Oxford is reportedly looking to leave West Ham this month but he is hoping to do so on his own terms.

The England youth international looked set for a bright future with the Hammers after he broke into their first-team at the start of the 2015-16 campaign.

After struggling to maintain his initial momentum, the youngster has slipped down the pecking order since then and has spent time on loan at both Reading and Borussia Monchengladbach over recent seasons.

It appears West Ham are now ready to cut their losses and the 20-year-old himself is keen to engineer a move away from the London Stadium.

However, Oxford has no intentions of being forced into joining any club and he also does not want to be shipped out on loan, which means a permanent transfer seems the only alternative.

Oxford is not expected to be short of suitors, with Arsenal, Everton and former club Gladbach all reportedly showing an interest, although they may have to pay a sizeable fee, as the youngster's current deal with West Ham is not due to expire until the summer of 2021.
