Slaven Bilic has backed West Ham loanee Reece Oxford to fight his way into the Borussia Monchengladbach side despite a disappointing start to his loan spell.

The 18-year-old, who spent last season on loan with Championship side Reading, is yet to make an appearance for the Bundesliga side since his loan move in the summer. Last month there was talk that the defender could cut short his deal in Germany and return to London Stadium, however, having stayed put Bilic is backing him to perform and return as a regular for the Hammers.

However, Bilic has warned Oxford not to let the nomination get to his head.-“Someone recognised him to be nominated for the Golden Boy award. If he goes one way and thinks he is [Kylian] Mbappe then that’s wrong, he needs to use this in the right way. He has got it in him, get his place and start playing regularly. Hopefully he will get that in Germany and it’ll be great to play in the Bundesliga.

West Ham will be travelling to Turf Moor to face Burnley on Saturday.
