Bilic tells Oxford why he should choose West Ham over Man Utd

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic hopes Reece Oxford inks a new contract that has been tabled.

The teen is being linked with Manchester United.

Bilic said: "I think he has a few examples of players who have had a great career starting at West Ham: Rio Ferdinand is very similar to him, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Jermain Defoe, Michael Carrick - at his age they went on loan, then came back and played and became regular players, then got to world-class status.

"I know he hasn't signed, his representatives are talking to the club and hopefully it will be sorted soon in a good way."
