West Ham United youngster Reece Oxford insists he needs to reconsider his future and may have to look for a new opportunity if the present situation doesn’t improve.
The 19 year old is regarded as one of the most talented English young players but is yet to be tested on the big stage. Manuel Pellegrini has used Declan Rice pretty regularly while the like of Grady Diangana has come up with productive performance on the pitch.
Oxford had two very good loan spells at Borussia Monchengladbach and the German club recently came back with a bid to bring in the player on a permanent basis.
But the London giants rejected their advances and it remains to be seen if Borussia fancy their chances in the winter transfer window.
Oxford said, “I sit on the settee and feel angry.
“I don’t want to be there – I want to be on the pitch, playing against these big teams. I’ve just got to find my way.
“Things can change round at West Ham in a week. I think (Manuel) Pellegrini believes if you are training hard you can get in, and I look at Grady (Diangana). He’s kicking on now and I want that to be me.
“But if I am not playing, I hope West Ham would look kindly on my situation and let me go, because there is no point being 20 and not around the first team. Hopefully everyone wants me to fulfil the potential they have seen.
“The club has done a lot for me. Given me my debut, made me the player I am. I could never talk down the club but right now I need to be playing and if West Ham are not playing me, I’ve got to move on and part ways.”
