Oxford should stay in Germany

Borussia Monchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl says that on-loan Reece Oxford should persevere with his season-long loan - despite not having played a single competitive match for his new club.

West Ham's teenage star was sent to Germany on loan for the season in order to gain some much-needed first team experience. However he is yet to play a single minute in the Bundesliga - leading to suggestions that his develop would be better served back home in England.

But not so, says Eberl - who insists that the England youth international should remain in Germany for the forseeable future. "It would make no sense for Reece to go back [to England] in December," he told the Times.

"There is a clause that they could take him back if he plays too few games. But we hope to be able to show Reece and West Ham very soon that he can have a perfect development here this season.

"The example for him is Andreas Christensen - not an English player, but another top, talented defender from a Premier League club. Andreas played two years here at the top level, made a huge improvement and is now playing for Chelsea."

Monchengladback are currently 5th in the Bundesliga having won four and drawn two of their opening eight league fixtures. Oxford has been an unused sub in every match bar the opening game of the campaign.
