Young Hammer Reece Oxford says he wants to challenge for a Champions League spot this season.

The teenage defender is on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach for the season and was grilled about his hopes and aspirations for the campaign ahead during a break in pre-season.

And top on his list is a high league finish that would enable his new club to qualify for Europe's Premier competition.

When asked what to expect this year, he replied: "I want the team to do well and challenge for a Champions League spot as we just missed out last year.

"Hopefully we can get a Champions League spot this year and win a trophy. I just want to play, keep clean sheets and win games. I'll be giving 100 per cent for team."

And when asked whether he might remain for longer than the one season, he replied: "I don't know, I haven't even kicked a ball in the Bundesliga yet! Hopefully I do play and you never know - we'll see."
