Report: Everton to bid for Reece Oxford

Everton are reportedly considering a £3m bid for West Ham defender Reece Oxford Sky Sports claims this afternoon.

Reece Oxford made his debut for West Ham’s first team as a 16-year-old under Slaven Bilic, becoming the club’s youngest-ever player and has since become an England U20 international.  He received a bumper pay rise to £20,000 per week making him the highest paid Academy player at West Ham.  Oxford spent last season on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach and West Ham say they will entertain offers over £10m.
Oxford was not included in the pre-season training camp to Austria indicating he is not in Pellegrini’s first team plans for the coming season. Instead he was made captain of the under 23 side at the AGP Arena earlier this week as the Hammers came off 4-0 winners over Billericay Town in a pre-season friendly for the Premier League 2 development squad.

If the report is true, an Everton bid of £3m is likely to be immediately rejected as insulting for a player that was valued at £18m two summers ago after interest from Manchester United and Manchester City.

  1. What a joke of a bid , chancers we can tell them to go away politely until they come up with the £10 million. Rather keep him for that amount what an insult.

  2. There is no way we can sell this guy for 3mil. Is it just me or do we not seem to get the money players are worth when there are other teams selling players for ridiculous money (Payet, Kayoute etc). I cant complain, we rarely sell nowadays especially first team players, BUT when we do we just dont seem to get the money.

  3. Good lets get shot !!!

  4. What for 3 mill? Never.

    • I should have read that part,no not for 3m, anything over 10 just add a sell on clause,it is hard to see him ever fullfilling his potential. Unless something major happens to him that puts a rocket up him he will prove to be a disappointment because he lacks the required hunger that top players have. We can use Noble as an example of someone who has maximised their natural ability, that is the type of hunger he would need at least 80% of, it isn’t something you can train, it is either there or it is not and with Reece no matter how hard he trains it appears absent for whatever reason, he has a rolls royce of ability but a nissan micra of desire. Even the lowliest player that has the opposite of that will be more successful.

  5. This is a player whose value will only increase in time. Even 10 million is a derisory amount when you consider what his future value could be. Even if we just kept loaning him out we would recoup more than 3 million plus we would still own the player.

  6. Slightly off topic but if he is on 20k per week why are we still haggling with Rice who has clearly demonstrated himself to be better and more committed
