West Ham wonderkid Reece Oxford has poured cold water over reports he has rejected a new contract.

But it is also being reported that Oxford has a clause in his contract that states West Ham do not have to accept a bid of less than £10m for the youngster.

oxford1Oxford’s current contract runs to 2018 and it’s no secret that the club are eager to tie him down to more extended terms in the near future.
