West Ham United’s Reece Oxford has secured a temporary move away from the London Stadium, as the midfielder has joined Borussia Monchengladbach on loan for the season.

Oxford burst onto the scene at the start of the 2015/16 campaign, when Hammers boss Slaven Bilic handed him a start in the 2-0 win over Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, and he has since gone on to make 14 appearances for the club.

He spent time on loan with Jaap Stam’s Reading earlier this year, but was restricted to just five appearances in all competitions.

The England Under-20 international will link up with Monchengladbach on July 1, who finished in ninth place in the Bundesliga last season.

Speaking to West Ham’s website, Bilic said: "This is a fantastic opportunity for Reece to continue his development and experience top level European football on a regular basis.

"He will play in a league which is very technical, which can only help him immensely, and he will also learn a new culture and gain valuable life experience.

"We believe Reece has a very exciting and successful future here at West Ham, and he now needs regular first-team football to ensure his progress continues.

"We wish Reece all the very best in this adventure, and look forward to welcoming him back to the club at the end of the season."

Meanwhile, the Hammers have also confirmed that goalkeeper Raphael Spiegel and defender Stephen Hendrie have both left the club after terminating their contracts.
