West Ham United youngster Reece Oxford is set to join Championship side Reading on loan for the remainder of the season, the club's co-chairman David Sullivan has confirmed.

The teenager has struggled to fit into Slaven Bilic's plans, only featuring twice this season, both appearances coming in the Europa League.

Don't expect much coming in today. We might have a couple of young players going out on loan. Reece Oxford might be going to Reading.

Championship side Reading have signed Romania forward Adrian Popa from Steaua Bucharest.

Popa, who has 21 international caps, has signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the Royals.

Adrian is a forward with enormous potential who has played at a high level in Romania as well as in European and international football.

He is an experienced player, who is quick, a constant threat to the opposition, good on the ball and who is comfortable playing on the left, on the right or even up front in a two.

With the amount of games we have coming up, a player of his quality will make it easier for us to rotate a little more and give some players a rest if we need to, so I’m delighted to have him here as part of our squad.

– Jaap Stam
