Sky Bet Championship side Nottingham Forest are plotting an ambitious loan move for West Ham wonderkid Reece Oxford, according to the Daily Mail.
The 18-year-old central defender burst onto the scene for West Ham United after a memorable debut against Arsenal, however, since then Oxford has suffered from injuries.
A reoccurring ankle injury has seen the highly rated youngster sidelined and short of match fitness which has led to Slaven Bilic considering loaning out the England Under 20 international.
Scottish giants Rangers had expressed their interest, however, it is Championship side Nottingham Forest who have made an enquiry about Oxford’s potential availability.
