According to reports online from ExWHUemployee, Bolton Wanderers attempted to sign West Ham United youngster Reece Oxford on loan.

ExWHUemployee stated on the West Ham Way:

“Reece Oxford has expressed his “love” for the club this week too. This coincides with no clubs making an offer to loan him apart from Bolton who only offered 70% wages and his agent wasn’t keen for him to go there. It is hoped by both Reece and his agent (who is also the recently departed Quina’s agent too) that a German team would move for him and Leipzig had scouted him at a recent under 23s game but he didn’t perform well at all and certainly didn’t look like a man who loved the club.”

So it seems that Wanderers weren’t an attractive option for Oxford’s agent. Not sure when Wanderers made a loan bid.

Oxford, 19, is a player with loads of potential and is also a player that is comfortable playing as a centre back or defensive midfielder.

It’s a shame, but not the end of the world that we couldn’t sign Oxford. Wanderers have plenty of cover at centre back and midfield. Joe Williams looks a really good prospect and bit of a coup for the club.
