West Ham transfer could happen as price named; £18m fee wanted

West Ham United are prepared to sell Reece Oxford should an offer of around £18million be made for him, according to a report by football.london.

The media outlet claims the Hammers midfielder could rejoin Borussia Monchengladbach on a permanent basis should they meet their valuation.

The West Ham youngster, who was once touted to be one of the best players to have come through the academy in recent memory, had been on loan at the German outfit during the first half of the season but was recalled following the arrival of David Moyes.

The new Hammers manager wanted to have a closer look at Oxford to see his ability, however, it appears that the performance he put in against Shrewsbury Town could suggest he no longer has a future at the London Stadium club.

The West Ham starlet has already attracted interest from other clubs in the Bundesliga, with Red Bull Leipzig having a reported £12m bid being rejected and it is believed he would like to return to Germany to continue with his career.

Monchengladbach Sporting Director Max Erbel had suggested recently that he had expected Oxford to return back to the club at the end of the month, although it was not thought to be under permanent circumstances.

The 19-year-old West Ham man had only started two Bundesliga games for the Borussia Park outfit during his loan spell there and should the club want to bring him back, they would have to smash their transfer record.
