West Ham defender Oxford not giving up on Gladbach loan

West Ham defender Reece Oxford insists he's not giving up on his loan with Borussia Monchengladbach.

The 18-year-old English defender, who was loaned to the Bundesliga club by West Ham for the season, is yet to make an appearance for Monchengladbach this season.

He told Sky Sports: "I think I'm fitter than ever now. I've done pre-season with Gladbach, I feel good and ready, I'm just waiting for my opportunity. It's patience, I'm young, watching the centre-backs ahead of me, and seeing what I can do to make me better.

"I'm just ready now, ready to make my debut, and hopefully it'll be good and I won't look back from there. I just hope to return to West Ham as a more experienced player, ready to play in the Premier League or any league."
