West Ham fans have been up since early this morning waiting for some kind of deal to materialise that will see their squad improve. However, it just doesn’t look like happening and now they look set to be waving goodbye to another player as reliable West Ham Twitter account, ExWHUemployee has claimed Reece Oxford is nearing an exit.
Reece Oxford looks set to be finally on the move to Germany. A couple of clubs have submitted bids.

The youngster made his Premier League debut as a 16-year-old against Arsenal on the opening day of the 2015/16 season and hopes were high that the Hammers had a real star on their hands. However, the Irons expectations of him have not been met, and after a loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, he now looks set to make the Bundesliga his permanent home, with Augsburg the touted club.
It looks like the Hammers won’t be getting to see Oxford break into their starting eleven and become a star after all, and instead, the man that has done that has been the sublime Declan Rice. Either way, the fans aren’t best pleased to see Oxford going and would have loved to have seen him cement himself in the first-team. The only positive is that this one should be done quickly and then Manuel Pellegrini can look to bring some new players in.

Can’t believe we are not trying to get a central defender what is wrong with these people running the club

The Hammers are far from happy with the way their club is handling deadline day and are all desperate to see some kind of movement soon.
