Reece Oxford Set For A Surprising Move Away From West Ham

It appears another Englishman is set to ply this trade in the Bundesliga.

West Ham sent Reece Oxford out on loan last season to the Championship with Reading but he only featured in five games. He played his last match for Jaap Stam in April where they lost 7-1 to Norwich.

After a frustrating season, Oxford will once again be shipped off loan. According to The Mirror, the 18-year-old is set to join Borussia Monchengladbach on a season-long-loan.

Since signing a long-term contract with West Ham, Oxford has found first-team football hard to come by despite breaking into the side as a 16-year-old.

Oxford started his first professional league game against Arsenal in the opening game of the 2015/16 season where he produced a brilliant performance in the middle of the park.

But since then he's only played a handful of games. Slaven Bilic is hopeful the move to Germany will continue his development for a player who he views as a big part for the clubs future.

Gladbach have a versatile player who can adopt a position in the defence or midfield.

If the deal gets completed, Oxford will follow in the footsteps of Owen Hargreaves and Michael Mancienne, among others, to play in the German top flight.

What do you make of Oxford's potential move to the Bundesliga?
