Reece Oxford has been linked with a loan move to Rangers
The Hammers signed Jose Fonte from Southampton for £8million last week – pushing Oxford further down the pecking order.
And Express Sport understand West Ham would be prepared to let Oxford leave this month if the right club made an offer.
Reports this afternoon have linked Oxford with Rangers, although it is understood no move is imminent.
Oxford has made just two appearances this season – both coming in the Europa League – despite believing he would be given a chance in Slaven Bilic's side.
However he was handed a new contract in December tieing him down until 2021.

The highly rated 18-year-old can operate in defence or as a holding midfielder.
He impressed against Arsenal in the first game of last season but has rarely played since.
Rangers have already two new bodies this month with the loan signings of Jon Toral from Arsenal and Emerson Hyndman from Bournemouth.
