CONFIMRED - Reece Oxford

by LoyalRoyal22 » 30 Jan 2017 21:34

Apparently we are trying to hijack his loan move to Forest. According to daily mirror journo on twitter.

I'd assume this would be to get some cover in defence.

He was reported as a midfielder by the paper I read the Forest rumour in :shock:
(I thought he was a cb?)

Has played in both positions but I think he is viewed as a CB.

Reece OXFORD!? With a name like that, he shouldn't be anywhere near our club!

We might as well sign Reece Aldershot!


:wink:

Thanks to the profanity filter on HNA, if we had to reference him we can just use some choice 4 letter swear words to save typing out those extra 2 letters in his surname.

100% yes based on purely nothing but MOTD highlights and early last season hype.

We do need some cover with Ilori out.

With Illori out and Cooper on loan elsewhere, deal makes sense if we are now playing 3 CB's.

Not sure what it says about Dickie's chances of getting into the team though. Would rather we give one of our own a chance but Oxford does look very good on limited evidence.

We could always offer Dickie to Forest on loan....

Could sign Stephen Warnock at the same time ... so we could have W@nker on the back of our shirts.

not against this, but I'm not quite sure where he would fit in at the moment. Esp as the crappy mail suggests he wants to 'tie down a first 11 spot'

DS: "Don't expect much coming in today. We might have a couple of young players going out on loan. @Reeceoxford_ might be going to Reading."

With only McShane and Moore the only fully fit centre backs at the moment it makes sense....don't reckon we'll see the new boy or VDB till end of March

Just heard David Sullivan talking to Alan Brazil on talksport and it sounded pretty certain that Reece Oxford would be joining us today.

He said Reading are very lucky to be getting Reece because he is the best 18 year old centre back in the country.

Brilliant signing for all parties. We need defensive cover if we want to use three at the back & he can slot straight in with Joey & Tiago injured for a few weeks. :D
