Moyes seeking to 'improve' returning Reece

David Moyes says he is looking forward to working with teenage defender Reece Oxford, after it was confirmed that the defender would be returning to West Ham.

The 19-year-old spent the opening half of the 2017/18 campaign on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, for whom he made just a handful of first team appearances.

However Oxford is likely to be thrown straight in at the deep end upon his return to London, with fellow defender Jose Fonte still some way from reaching full fitness and Winston Reid struggling for form and benched for United's most recent outing at Bournemouth.

Speaking during a press conference today, Moyes admitted that is looking forward to working with the England youth international, who has already returned to London.

"Reece Oxford will come back", said Moyes. "We will take a look at him and see how he is. I hope we can help improve him - I've only just met him, but I know he is well thought of here and we will work with him."
