Reece Oxford will discover today whether he is on his way back to Germany or staying with the Hammers for the rest of the season.
It looked a given that David Moyes would make the decision to send him back but the injury crisis at the club may have changed that.
According to Sky Sports the two will meet this morning when Oxford will be informed of the manager’s decision after he appeared for the last five minutes against Palace following Chiek Kouyate’s departure.
And despite some lack lustre performances in the FA Cup it now seems the odds may be shortening against a return to Borrusia Monchengladbach.
Meanwhile the manager will also be making his decision on whether Reece Burke and Josh Cullen will be staying at the club or returning to Bolton for the remainder of the season.
