However, the talented teenager who can operate in defence or midfield has failed to make an appearance for Monchengladbach, and has not even seen any action coming on from the bench.

Sources close to the player told SunSport: “Reece hoped the move to Germany would work out better than it has, but it’s time to come back.

“Monchengladbach play a certain way and had a system in place before they signed Reece, and for some reason he has not fitted into what they are doing.

“If he’s not going to feature after they were hammered 6-1, then when will he?”

The Hammers have been watching developments closely, with Oxford now set to return to East London in December.

Oxford burst on to the scene in 2015 and was outstanding on his Premier League bow at Arsenal.
