WEST HAM have called in the police after Reece Oxford’s treasured watch was stolen from the club’s training ground.

The Hammers have launched an investigation after teenage starlet Oxford reported his gold Rolex missing last week.

Oxford was given the timepiece as an 18th birthday present from his mother – and has been left upset by its disappearance.

Now the club are working with the local police in an effort to find out who took it from their academy training base in Chadwell Heath on Friday.

It is understood there have been no signs of any forced entry into the building and CCTV is now being reviewed.

But because it is an academy site there are only limited cameras due to the number of minors who use the facility.

A West Ham spokesperson said: “The club is aware of an allegation of theft at our academy headquarters in Chadwell Heath.

“We are treating the matter extremely seriously in line with internal protocol and co-operating fully with a police investigation.”

The alleged theft is the latest blow to Oxford who has found his progress into a regular first team player at the London Stadium grind to a halt.

He was heralded as one of the best young talents in England when he made a brilliant debut as a 16-year-old against Arsenal.
