Nottingham Forest could be the ideal move for Reece Oxford, as he looks to get his career back on track.

The Daily Mirror suggest that Forest want to snap up Oxford from West Ham United.

The defensive midfielder, who can also play at centre-back, has failed to feature for Manuel Pellegrini’s side this term, with his game time being very limited over recent years.

 

However, Forest could be making a smart signing if they could get a deal over the line.

Oxford was only 16 when he was given his first opportunity at West Ham, and his performances back then showed his talent.

The youngster looked at home in the Premier League when he was a teenager, and although his development has stalled recently, he still has a huge amount of potential.

Oxford could play regularly again at Forest, which would surely benefit him.

And if Oxford did go on to fulfil his potential at the City Ground, then he could turn out to be a brilliant addition for the years ahead.
