Hall recalled

West Ham United have recalled Rob Hall from his second loan spell at Oxford United.

England Under-19 forward Hall has been in outstanding goalscoring form for Oxford, netting six times in 14 appearances during two periods with the U's this season.

The youngster, who celebrated his 18th birthday on 20 October, has helped Oxford to make a strong claim for a place in the League Two Play-Offs.

Hall was originally recalled from his first loan spell at the Kassam Stadium at the end of October. He was named among the substitutes for the goalless npower Championship draw with Bristol City on 1 November before travelling with the first-team squad to Hull City four days later.

The teenager, who returned on Oxford on 16 November, was also part of the Hammers side that defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-2 in the FA Youth Cup third round earlier this month.

Hall will return to Chadwell Heath for training on Friday
