Hammers update Oxford/Man City story

reece-oxford-west-ham-england_3320617West Ham have tonight denied that Manchester City  or any other Premier League club  has made a move for young defender Reece Oxford.

The 17 year old has been watched by bothe Manchester clubs as England under 19s have progressed into the semi finals of the European Championships and play Italy on Thursday.

And reports have emerged that City have made an official enquiry about his availability to the east London outfit. on Monday evening after they had scouted the player.

However, that was immediately denied by a top insider at the London Stadium who said: “We have had no inquiry from an Premier League club – nor do we want one. The speculation is untrue.”

Both United and Spurs are inerested but the Hammers are disinterested in any discussions over their star Academy protegee with the source saying: “He has two years left on his contract. There’s no panic and we will sit down and talk at the right time which isn’t now.”

  1. There is so much misinformation floating around regarding transfers at the moment, it is virtually a total waste of time reading it.

  2. I think he will leave and if he is going we need to get the most out of the deal we can,
    If City want him then make them part with a good player like Bony and resolve one of our problem areas,
    If Manure want him then Rojo to cover our right hand side at full back or CH would be great
    As for the Spuds or Gooners tell them to take a flying leap,
    If he wants to progress then pay him a decent wage and get him to sign for 4 years, £20 k per week is not that bad a deal for us in 4 years time he will be worth £50 million plus

  3. If we lose Oxford my questions are “What sort of club are we? Have we gone back to being a selling club? Finally what message does it send to players looking at coming to our club?” I have always said Oxford is the litmus test for W.H.U. If we let him go we will regret it “big time”.IMO.
