Reece Oxford has flown straight from his England under 19 adventure to Austria where has linked up with the Irons squad.
And that really is good news from every perspective with the regular rumours surrounding his future.
ClaretandHugh has been assured again this morning (Tues) that media reports claiming there has been an £18 million offer from Manchester City are rubbish and that the club will start negotiating a new deal with the player soon.
We were told by our top insider: “There has been no offer at all, nor would we welcome one. Reece Oxford is seen as a big player in this club’s future.”
However, it’s mportant the player is made to feel a big part of Slav’s plans and the decision to call him out to the Austrian training camp suggests he could be included in the Europa Cup clash against NK Domzale at Stadion Stozice on Thursday evening.
Reece – fresh from helping England reach the semi-finals of the UEFA U19 Championships, qualifying for next summer’s FIFA U20 World Cup in the process – will be ready for action and we hope he gets a call-up.
Great news .
Great now get his name on a new contract for 4-5 years,
Don’t mess about give him a wage now that puts others off with linked increases each year on first team playing time,
We need to keep the best as we can’t buy them,
Yedder could have been in the bag before any one else had a chance,
Now we will pay through the nose for a left back because they know how desperate we are,
I seem to remember reading that he cannot sign a contract in excess of two years in length until he is 18 in December 2016.
Maybe Bilic didn’t fancy Yedder,maybe he didn’t want to come to us.Its no good assuming we have missed out on players all the time when we know nothing about the real picture.
