West Ham fans on Twitter delight at Reece Oxford’s imminent exit

West Ham fans on Twitter delight at Reece Oxford’s imminent exit

West Ham fans have been given little in the way of transfers this window. The news that Marko Arnautovuc will be staying at the club is positive despite the unnecessary saga around him. However, one departure that looks like happening is Reece Oxford leaving for the Bundesliga, as was confirmed by reliable twitter account, ExWHUemployee.

The young English defensive midfielder looked like he had a real future as a player at West Ham when he started and shone on the opening day of the 2015/16 season against Arsenal in a 2-0 win. However, things haven’t panned out the way the 20-year-old would have hoped for, and it looks like he’ll be on his way to Germany to play in the Bundesliga again.

Oxford has previous experience in the German top flight having played on-loan for Borussia Monchengladbach on a temporary basis throughout the 2017/18 season. The German won’t be the only young English talent out in Germany though, as the likes of Jadon Sancho, Reiss Nelson and Keanan Bennetts are already out there, and it looks like a move to get first-team football will suit the West Ham man who’s failed to kick on since moving up through the academy.
