Nottingham Forest and Eintracht Frankfurt are in talks to sign West Ham defender Reece Oxford, according to Sky sources.

The Bundesliga side are believed to be ready to pay an £8m fee to bring the 20-year-old, whose contract with the Hammers runs until June 2021, to the Bundesliga.

Oxford already has experience of the German top flight having spent most of the past season on loan to Borussia Monchengladbach, for whom he made seven appearances.

Forest are also understood to be in talks with West Ham over Oxford, with Martin O'Neill looking to add to his squad after taking charge at the City Ground earlier this month.

Oxford is yet to play a game for West Ham this season, with his last appearance for the club coming in October 2016.

He became their youngest ever player at 16 years and 198 days when he made his debut in a Europa League tie in July 2015.
