West Brom to move for West Ham’s Reece Oxford – Telegraph

Reece Oxford set to leave West Ham this summer

West Ham youngster Reece Oxford looks set to leave the Hammers this summer, with West Brom interested in signing the defender.

Oxford looked destined for greatness after making his West Ham debut aged 16.

The youngster made his debut against Arsenal, becoming the club’s youngest ever debutant.

However, his career hasn’t really progressed from there.

Oxford failed to keep his place in the first team and was loaned out to Reading and Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2017.

He only featured seven times across those two loan spells but rejoined Mönchengladbach in 2018, this time featuring four times.

Finally, Oxford spent part of last season on loan at Augsburg, again playing a disappointing eight times.

Now, the 20-year-old looks set to leave West Ham this summer.

Oxford set for Championship move

According to the Telegraph, a permanent move to Augsburg is on the brink of collapse.

They claim that ‘Augsburg have agreed a €4.5 million deal with West Ham for Oxford with a four-year contract – but the player wants a standard relegation clause. Augsburg finished 16th last season, four points outside the league’s relegation play-off spot.’ 

If Augsburg won’t give in to Oxford’s demands, the move could soon fall through.

The Telegraph go on to explain that there’s interest from West Brom, with the Baggies set to appoint Reece Oxford’s former manager Slaven Bilic.

Middlesbrough are also said to be interested in the player.

According to the Telegraph’s report, West Ham would be willing to let Oxford leave for £2 million ‘in the English market’.

Oxford only has two years remaining on his current deal.
