On-loan defender Reece Oxford could be re-called back by his parent club West Ham, with the teenager potentially faces a return in January as the terms of his loan contract have not been fulfilled by Borussia Monchengladbach. West Ham boss David Moyes will make the decision just before January if he is call the defender back.
Oxford was loaned out to the German club to step up his education, as well as the opportunity to gain experience. The teenagers's loan deal dictates that he must make seven appearances for the German side, but has only managed three appearances thus far.
The Hammers loanee first made his appearance for the German side back in October, with his other two appearances coming last week. Despite falling short of his loan contract, Gladbach could potentially look to sign the English defender permanently.
According to the Daily Mail, club insiders have dismissed any claims of letting Oxford go permanently, who is still contracted to West Ham until the summer of 2021. The Hammers still see him as a hot prospect, and Gladbach's lowly £6m offer will not be entertained.
With the January transfer window looming close, Daily Mail are reporting that Moyes will be looking to strengthen his side by eyeing up three transfer targets with Premier League experience, most particularly in the midfield region.
Moyes' search for players with renowned Premier League experience could signal that they won't require recalling Oxford from his loan.
However, if Moyes' side are to fall short with injuries, then Oxford could well find himself returning to his parent club.
