Could Lee, Oxford and Cullen leave West Ham on loan this week?

Upton Park

Taking a look at three West Ham United players who could be on the move in what remains of the emergency loan window.

While West Ham United cannot currently add any players to their squad they can temporarily send some elsewhere, with the Football League emergency window open until Thursday.

Here we take a look at three West Ham players who would benefit from a loan spell and who could leave in the coming days:

Elliot Lee

Young West Ham striker Elliot Lee admitted in a recent interview with the club’s official website that he hoped to secure a loan move in what remained of the emergency window.

The 20-year-old played a major role in the Hammers’ Europa League qualifying campaign but he has not been seen in the first-team since, making the bench just once in the Premier League and playing predominantly for the club’s under-21s.

With 14 goals in 33 matches at that level for West Ham, the time has come for Lee to head back out on loan.

Reece Oxford

He may only be 16 but midfielder Reece Oxford has maturity and talent beyond his years and he looks destined to become a future West Ham superstar.

However, since making his debut against Arsenal on the opening weekend he has been used sparingly, and there are sure to be plenty of Championship clubs keen to bring in a player of his calibre.

Would the Hammers sanction a temporary move? Only time will tell, but Oxford is ready for regular first-team football and a stint away from Upton Park could be the making of him.

Josh Cullen

Josh Cullen is the current captain of West Ham’s under-21s and the goal-scoring midfielder could be a good asset for a number of Football League clubs.

The 19-year-old is one of the most highly-rated players in West Ham’s academy and after four first-team appearances the time may have come for him to add to that tally elsewhere.
