West Ham starlet Oxford - once regarded as one of the most highly-rated young players in English football - is somewhat in limbo at the moment.
But the club recalled the youngster in December so David Moyes could assess his ability and decide whether he wanted him as part of his injury-riddled first team squad.
He was promptly injured and turned in a terrible performance against Shrewsbury in the FA Cup when he did return.
His future has been in doubt since with reports linking him with a return to the German club.
But with West Ham's injury woes, he may well be needed in East London.
Fans have been perplexed by continued talk that Oxford wants a permanent move to the Bundesliga side.
And they weren't best pleased when Borussia Monchengladbach made a cheeky comment about the player's future on Twitter.
Accompanying a video of Oxford failing miserably when trying his hand on a golf driving range, the German club's media team said: "Wrong club perhaps, Reece Oxford?"
That sparked a barrage of abuse from Hammers fans including taunts over the Monchengladbach's quality compared with rivals Dortmund.
Oxford, who shot to prominence when he made his debut with a midfield masterclass in a 2-0 win over Arsenal at the Emirates in the opening game of the 2015/16 season aged just 16, can only play for West Ham or Monchengladbach for the remainder of the season as per UEFA rules.
