West Ham fans react as Reece Oxford joins Augsburg on a permanent basis

Lots of West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was announced by the club that Reece Oxford had left to join Augsburg on a permanent basis.

The 20-year-old joins the Bundesliga side for an undisclosed fee and in doing so brings an end to an eight-year stay with the Hammers, in which he made history.

Oxford became the club’s youngest ever first-team player when he made his debut in a Europa League qualifier against Lusitanos of Andorra aged 16 years and 198 days, and then became the club’s second youngest Premier League appearance maker in the 2-0 win over Arsenal on the opening day of the 2015/16 season.

Having spent time on loan with Reading and Borussia Monchengladbach after bursting onto the scene as a teenager, it seems as if Oxford has failed to live up to his huge potential with the Irons – hopefully he can get back on track with Augsburg.

Let’s see how the West Ham fans on Twitter reacted to the news…
