Reece Oxford wants an improved wage packet and more performance-based bonuses if he is to sign a new contract at West Ham, according to a report.
The 17-year-old still has three years left on his current contract at the Olympic Stadium but is already laying down the law in regards to any new offers on the table for his services.
It is understood that any move away from the club would be unlikely this year and that Oxford may well be using other club’s interest as a platform from which to boost his own salary.
Oxford started for West Ham in Thursday’s 1-1 draw against FK Astra Giurgiu and, despite seeing his side concede late-on in the match, he showed composure and class for a player of his age.
The youngster made his debut against Arsenal on the opening day of last season and impressed a host of fans and pundits with his performance.
The starlet can play an array of different positions and is especially capable in central-defensive and holding-midfield roles.
