As first revealed by the Mirror weeks ago, the Hammers were keen to send Oxford out on a season-long loan with the Foals to gain first team experience and Colossal Sports Management have posted a picture of the player alongside Gladbach’s sporting director Max Eberl to confirm the deal.
The 18-year-old follows Chelsea youngster Andreas Christensen in moving from the Premier League to the Borussia Park in order to develop as a player.
Oxford, who signed a new deal last season until 2021, is versatile and can play in centre-midfield or at centre-back.
After a couple of appearances under Slaven Bilic in the Europa League qualifiers, Oxford’s involvement in the first team was cut short, leading to a five-month loan spell with Reading.
The second-youngster player to start a Premier League game against Arsenal in August 2015, aged 16 years and 198 days, the Hammers have held him back since.
Gladbach have a fine record in nurturing young talent and offered Christensen 81 games in a two-year loan spell, which will give West Ham optimism that Oxford will be handed a similar amount of game time.
