Reece Oxford in line for extended stay at Gladbach


Borussia Mönchengladbach are keen to make Reece Oxford's loan move from West Ham United permanent with the 18-year-old English defender impressing since joining the Bundesliga club in the summer.

While the Foals' fans may not yet have seen much of the central defender, who has appeared for just one minute in the Bundesliga so far this season, he has already made an impression on Gladbach's sporting director Max Eberl with his application in training.

"He's a top lad," Eberl told the Rheinische Post. "He's come on well and we're very happy with him. It takes time to find your feet in the Bundesliga, but we certainly want him to stay. West Ham now have the final say."

A clause in the loan deal means Oxford would have become a Foal permanently had he played a certain number of games before the winter break, but Eberl says he is now not going to be able to activate that clause.

"We could look into signing him anyway," added Eberl, who says he sees no reason to look for other players in the transfer market this winter. "When our injured players are back, we're going to have quite a strong troop."
