West Ham starlet Oxford rejects new contract

Reece Oxford has turned down a fresh contract offer from West Ham United.

Sky Sports reports that the 17-year-old talent has rejected a long-term deal to remain with the Hammers beyond his current contract which expires in the summer of 2018.

Oxford, who can operate as a midfielder or defender, is believed to be worried about his lack of regular game time in East London and could be pondering alternative options.

The England U19 international became West Ham's youngest ever Premier League player when he started in the 2015/16 season-opening win over London rivals Arsenal.
