West Ham won’t sell English ace despite heavy Man United transfer interest

According to reports from The Times, West Ham are determined to block any attempts to sign defensive prodigy Reece Oxford during the summer transfer window.

The 17-year-old rose to acclaim with an expert display against Arsenal on the opening day of last season, keeping a leash on one of the beautiful game’s top attacking midfielders in World Cup winner Mesut Ozil.

He went on to register just six more Premier League outings for the Hammers but remains highly thought of throughout the English game, with a host of top clubs reportedly chasing his signature.

Indeed, The Times claim Manchester United are long-term admirers of the England U19, whilst Arsenal and Liverpool are certain to express an interest if he becomes available.

But West Ham are determined to hold onto their most promising youngster in over a decade and will reportedly reject any approaches they receive during the summer transfer window.
