West Brom are eyeing up a deal to sign West Ham defender Reece Oxford this summer.

According to The Telegraph, West Brom are ready to make a move for Oxford, who is available for £2m.

The report claims that West Ham want to sell Oxford in the coming months and have already accepted an offer from German club Augsburg.

However, the move is said to be falling apart due to Augsburg not being willing to insert a clause allowing him to leave if they are relegated to the 2. Bundesliga.

This has alerted Middlesbrough and West Brom, who are now looking to swoop in and hijack a deal for the young defender.

The report claims that Slaven Bilic is set to take over at West Brom and the Croatian boss gave Oxford his debut whilst in charge of West Ham. This means that he could be able to persuade Oxford to move to the Hawthorns.
