​Teenager Oxford in frame for West Ham's Europa League clash

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic could hand 17-year-old Reece Oxford a place in the side for Thursday's Europa League clash away to NK Domzale after the defender joined the club's pre-season camp in Austria following England's exit from the U19 European Championship.

"I made my debut in the Europa League last season, then played two or three more and that helped me go on and play the first game in the Premier League," Oxford said.

"Hopefully I can do the same this summer. It would be good to be part of the squad to play in the first game at the new Stadium next week too."
