According to reports in English news outlet The Sun, highly rated West Ham United youngster Reece Oxford will snub interests from English giants Manchester United and Manchester City as he is all set to sign a new contract with the Hammers.

The youngster hogged the limelight when he gave a brilliant performance in the opening game last season against Arsenal but has struggled to get regular first team action. So far he has played seven games for the first team and is yet to play in this season. It gave rise to speculation that the youngster would make his way out of the club with both the Manchester clubs highly interested. The arch rivals  sent scouts to watch him play at the European Championships for the England Under-19s.

The 17-year old’s current contract expires in 2019 but the Hammers are reportedly desperate to keep their prized asset and are planning to extend his stay at the club.

As quoted in the daily, a West Ham source said: “There is no agreement confirm with Oxford, but there is no issues.

“His basic wage will increase along with clauses for appearances and England call-ups and the like.
“Oxford is one of the most highly sought-after young players in the country and we’re sure he’ll stay with West Ham.”

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
