Moyes set disappoint Germans on Oxford

reece-oxford-west-ham-oxford_3335636David Moyes has told Borrusia Monchengladbch and FC Leipzig he’s not keen on selling his best young players.

Borrussia are desperate to get Reece Oxford back to Germany with Sporting director Max Eberl making his enthusiasm for the 19 year old very obvious.

Reece spent the first half of the season on loan at the Bundesliga side, making just four appearances and totting up a total of 256 minutes.

But Eberl has revealed the German side are in talks with the Hammers and are hoping there are no bigger offers on the table with FC Leipzig known to be monitoring the situation

He told Kicker: “We have spoken a lot with West Ham during the winter break. The talks continue to move forward. I hope there won’t be a bigger offer from another club. Then we have the chance that Reece comes back to us.”

But Moyes has madeit clear he is not at all happy selling his top young players.

He explained: “What I’m not keen on is selling my best young players. Wherever I’ve been you keep your best young players.

“Reece played the last three games and, if he hadn’t, you’d be asking what he’s doing out there if he’s not getting any football.

“He wasn’t playing regularly enough. He’s just really got into the team the last couple of games and I don’t think there’s any guarantee he would go back in the team. There was a little to do with injuries. My feeling was that you wouldn’t want to sell your best young players.”

  1. I don’t know what to make of Oxford. He played well for us on his debut but he couldn’t get a game with several clubs who took him on loan and Charlton even turned him down. He couldn’t get a game in Germany yet they want to buy him. Smells like the germans knew that they had a good player and didn’t want to play him in case he attracted bigger offers.

  2. I heard that the ‘Gladbags’ were interested in a 15 million quid deal for Oxford.
    I have seen enough of Oxford to realize his potential, and Moyes would be making a terrible mistake to give him away..

  3. By the look of it we are gonna need him sooner rather than later. They seem to be running out of space in the West Ham sick room. Oh hang on he is injured too!

  4. Good I just hope Moyes uses him bc otherwise could of left in in loan to get good experience.
    But in Ox Rice Cullen & Burke (Holland when back) we have a core of good young English talent to build on. Rice I believe has made is impact & Moyes will use him & Cullen seems to impress Moyes did me but always enjoy watching him. I think we need to keel Burke tll bc best at CB good RB cover but need the depth.
    Be very upset if Cullen doesn’t stay deserves a chance under proper staff low wages & good in & off the ba & what he lacks in natural talent makes up for in work rate.

    Hope to see Ox & other 3 & Holland when back get chances
