Monchengladbach head coach Dieter Hecking said: "The ball is now with West Ham and Reece made a clear statement saying he would like to continue playing football in Gladbach and I personally believe that would be the best for his development."

The Bundesliga club want to sign Oxford on a permanent deal and are expected to hear back from the Hammers, who are having a meeting about the defender on Tuesday, within the next 24 hours.
