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.

The Hammers prodigy was farmed out on a season-long loan to German side Borussia Monchengladbach to gain more first-team experience this season.

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.
