As per one of the latest reports by Derbyshire Live, Leeds United are keeping close tabs on West Ham United’s sensation Reece Oxford. The Whites are desirous to sign him on a season-long loan to bring cover for the first-choice defenders of their ranks
Oxford emerged through the youth ranks of Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United and made his competitive debut for the Hammers on 2nd July 2015 in a 3-0 win for his side over Lusitanos in the Europa League. He is a young gun with tremendous potential and there is no denying that.
However, he hasn’t been getting a good run of games under his belt to make his presence felt and at the moment, probably he needs a productive loan spell to showcase his resilience. The 19-year-old is a centre-back but is capable enough of plying his trade as a central defensive midfielder as well.
Oxford’s move to the Elland Road should be a beneficial one for all the parties involved and he would be able to learn a lot under the tutelage of Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa. The Daily Mail has reported that Eibar and AZ Alkmaar are also interested to sign him and it would be intriguing to see what the future has in store for him.
