West Ham will make youngsters Reece Oxford and Domingos Quina available for loan this summer, according to a report.

The Mail claim that the Hammers plan to make the teenage pair available for season-long deals so they can experience regular first team football elsewhere.

It is understood that their departures will include break clauses which can be activated in the winter transfer window.

The report also details that the Londoners would prefer their moves to be wrapped up quickly so they can have a full pre-season elsewhere.

Oxford is a highly rated defender and has featured in various age levels for England up to the Under-20s side.

The centre-back has made 16 senior caps already for West Ham, but the 18-year-old is set to get a chance to continue his development away from the London Stadium next season.

He suffered with injury during the first half of this campaign and was loaned out to Championship side Reading in the second, who have made it to the play-off finals.

Oxford has made five appearances during his time with the Royals, but has found it difficult forcing his way into Jaap Stam’s starting line-up.

West Ham fans are fully aware of the youngster’s talents and he has also showed his versatility in the past by playing as a defensive midfielder.

Meanwhile, Quina is also set for a spell away from the club and it will be his first taste of a loan move.

The 17-year-old central midfielder has two senior appearances under his belt for West Ham, which came in their Europa League qualifier at the beginning of last season.

He has impressed in their Under-23s side and will now get the chance to prove himself at senior level.
