Reece Oxford reportedly wants to re-negotiate his West ham contract to reflect hos £15million valuation.

According to the Daily Mail, Oxford’s representatives feel their client should be offered an improved deal as he enters the final two years of his current contract at Upton Park.

The 17-year-old defender, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United, is believed to have turned down the club’s £12,000-a-week offer in May, according to The Sun. They claimed the two parties were some distance apart in the discussions and the club are understood to be in no rush to hold further contract talks.

Slaven Bilic handed Oxford his debut on the opening day of last season and the teenager went on to make 12 appearances in all competitions.

The Croatian is expected to hand Oxford plenty more opportunities this season with West Ham competing in the Europa League.
