Reece Oxford has slammed reports about him in the Sun Newspaper this morning calling them fake.
The Sun reported that Reece Oxford wants £40,000 a week and a £1million signing-on fee to commit his long term future to West Ham. It adds the defender and the club are at a stand-off over a new three-year contract, although the England Under-19s star denies he has rejected any firm deal.
It adds “West Ham are holding out on meeting Oxford’s demands in full but have made offered him a significant pay rise.Oxford, 17, has two years to run on his contract and is one of the most talked-about young English players in the Premier League and has been linked with £8m moves to Manchester City and Manchester United.”
However Oxford’s response to these reports was one of humour “Lol what am I seeing now #fake“
Yesterday, ClaretandHugh contacted its top source at the club as the speculation intensified and was immediately assured there “is nothing in any of this at all.”
He added: “There have been no inquiries from anywhere but the time of year always sees a certain train of events get underway and there’s always a legion of agents and middlemen ready to start rumours through the media. We are talking all the time and monitoring things and there is nothing to be concerned about.”
