Borussia Monchengladbach have confirmed that Reece Oxford has returned to West Ham - but insist that the player would rather remain in Germany.

Hammers boss David Moyes, speaking to the media earlier today confirmed that Oxford was on his way back to West Ham for the second half of the campaign after his season-long loan spell with Gladbach was cut short.

However in a news article appearing on the Bundesliga club's own website this afternoon (Friday), Sporting Director Max Eberl claimed that Oxford had been recalled to West Ham against his wishes - and confirmed that they were still attempting to clinch a permanent deal for the England youth international.

"We were informed of West Ham's decision to activate the clause and recall him this morning," said Eberl. "However, we continue to be in talks with West Ham regarding Reece Oxford completing a permanent move to Borussia. It is also the player’s wish to stay at Gladbach."

Oxford, who made just four first team appearances during his six months in Germany is yet to comment publicly since returning to London. West Ham were able to recall him due to an appearance clause in his loan contract not being met.
