Speaking to The Times, Reece Oxford has admitted he may have to leave West Ham in search of first-team football.
The 19-year-old central defender, who is also capable of slotting in a defensive midfield position, spoke about the club in a grateful manner, and pointed out that it was the Hammers who gave him his professional debut and made him the player he is, but if they aren’t willing to let him play then it may be in everyone’s best interest to part ways.
Oxford spent the 2017/18 in Germany, on loan with Borussia Monchengladach, and the Bundesliga side are now reportedly interested in a permanent deal. Since his return to the London Stadium this summer, he hasn’t been used by manager Manuel Pellegrini at all, and he said he feels angry about missing out on all the action.
He hopes the club will be understanding about his plight, and if there is no place for him in the first team, that they will consider letting him go.
