Oxford joins Bundesliga side FC Augsburg on loan

Reece Oxford

Reece Oxford has signed a loan deal with Bundesliga side FC Augsburg for the rest of the 2018/19 season.

The 20-year-old defender returns to Germany for his second spell in the Bundesliga, having featured eight times for Borussia Monchengladbach last term.

Augsburg are currently 15th in the table, and will be looking for a strong second half of the campaign to better their 12th place finish in 2017/18.

Oxford made his first team debut for the Hammers as a 16-year-old in a July 2015 UEFA Europa League tie against Andorran side FC Lusitans and has gone on to play 17 games in the Claret and Blue.

West Ham United wishes Reece all the best for his loan spell with Augsburg.
