​West Ham youngster Reece Oxford in Leipzig move

West Ham defender Reece Oxford is set to complete a surprise move to Bundesliga side RB Leipzig next month, reports BBC Sport.

The 19 year old has been on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach and has made three league appearances this season.

However, RB Leipzig are optimistic of a deal being agreed for an initial 9m Euros (£8m), with the fee potentially rising to 19m (£16.88m) with add ons.

Leipzig tried to buy Oxford in 2016 but could not agree a fee with the Hammers.
