Reece Oxford, the highly-rated 18 year old defender and West Ham confirms they have signed a new four-year deal.
Oxford, who is celebrating his 18th birthday today, said: “I am happy to have signed my new contract. There was a lot of speculation about my future but I am happy that it has been done and I can get back to football. I just want to kick on now.
“I have made my family proud and hopefully I have made the fans proud that I have signed a new contract. Hopefully I can get into the team and help them throughout the whole season.
“I have a good relationship with the gaffer and hopefully I can get a lot of game time here. I have seen some of the old players like Joe Cole and Rio Ferdinand and I want to follow in their footsteps.
“Hopefully, I can become just as big as them or even bigger. Hopefully, I can step out and follow what they have achieved.”
