Oxford's coming home

Reece Oxford's season-long loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach is to end early.

The 18-year-old central defender moved to Germany during the summer with view to gaining a year's experience in the Bundesliga.

However the England youth international is packing his pags in preparation for a return to England, after the two clubs agreed to cancel the agreement just two months into the season.

KUMB reported earlier this month how Oxford was still waiting to make his first start for Monchengladbach - since when he has remained on the bench, even though his side were thrashed 6-1 defeat at Borussia Dortmund last week.

And it is thought that the Hammers have become increasingly frustrated at Oxford's lack of game time, leading to the decision to bring him back to London, some SEVEN months ahead of schedule.

Oxford, who made his first team debut for West Ham at the age of 16 had previously spent time on loan at Reading, prior to moving to Germany.
