Reece Oxford: Rubbishes talk of contract stand-off

West Ham defender Reece Oxford has silenced rumours he has snubbed a new deal with a post on social media.

Reports on Tuesday night said the 17-year-old had rejected a new contract with the Hammers and would be allowed to leave the club for a fee in excess of £10million.

But writing on his Twitter account, Oxford said “Wow rumours will be rumours”, adding emojis of a face laughing with tears and a snoozing face.

Oxford broke into the West Ham side to some acclaim last summer, putting in some stellar first-team performances when just 16.

He went on to make 12 appearances throughout the season – five of which came this year – and he has two years remaining on his existing deal.
