RB Leipzig are reportedly closing in on the permanent signing of West Ham United defender Reece Oxford, who is currently on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach.

RB Leipzig have reportedly agreed a deal with West Ham United to sign defender Reece Oxford.

At the start of the season, West Ham allowed Oxford to pen a season-long loan with Borussia Monchengladbach and despite making just three appearances in the Bundesliga, the German club had expressed an interest in completing a permanent transfer.

However, according to BBC Sport, Leipzig have stepped in with an offer of £8m, which could potentially rise to nearly £17m.

A section of West Ham supporters had wanted manager David Moyes to recall the 19-year-old instead of spending funds on a new player with similar attributes, but it appears that the Hammers are prepared to cash in on one of their top prospects.

Should a deal be completed, Oxford will leave the Premier League side having made a total of 14 appearances in all competitions.
