Ex-West Ham defender Oxford ready for Bundesliga restart: Prem pals are jealous!

Former West Ham defender and England under-20 international, Reece Oxford, will also be in Bundesliga action this weekend.

Oxford plays for Augsburg at home to Wolfsburg on Saturday.

"Just recently we got to the stage where we could all train together," the 21-year-old told BBC Sport. "This week we have been training together and getting tested every two days. We are ready to go,"

"When they said we could go in full contact, no one was iffy or worried about it, we were just ready to train as normal.

"I know a few players in the Premier League and they are angry their season is not starting. I know they are jealous our season is starting now.

"Everyone around the world will be watching the league."
