Cullen in, Sanchez out, January deal could be on

West Ham are keeping a very close eye on loanee Josh Cullen as he continues to ply his trade at Charlton this season.

He was very close to remaining as part of the Hammers squad this season until the manager accepted that another year in the Championship would be a good idea.

Cullen’s contract ends at the end of the year but Pellegrini could opt to offer him a new deal with Carlos Sancjez coming to the end of his time at the club next summer.

Cullen – who has been discussed as a possible Mark Nob;e replacement in time – has made seven appearances for the Addicks who are in ninth place just four points off the top of the Championship.

Sanchez, meanwhile, has been very much an occasional Hammers player since he arrived on a £40k a week deal and is one of those who could be moved on in January if any clubs were interested in taking the Colombian.

And that could even see Cullen return in January given he has a recall clause in his contract between January 1 – 14.

  1. Not sure he is PL quality but he is a player that will give a 100% every time he plays. Would rather see him play than Sanchez on present form.

  2. Get him back as soon as possible.

  3. Get Josh back as soon as possible, we need you boy!

  4. I done think Josh Cullen is ready for the hammers and Sanchez is on good wages and due to his age I cannot see anyone coming in for him.

  5. Im sorry to say that Carlos has not quite cut it since he arrived in the PL. He was never the best at VIlla and that’s sadly continued with us. He’s a good enough player but has dips in concentration that are littered throughout games.
    Josh Cullen has been playing very well according to the Addicks fans I know, it would be a good thing for the club for more homegrown talent to be in the first team. Next season we could potentially have 6 acadamy players in the first team matchday squad. Happy happy days!

  6. Not sure about Cullen but Sanchez is absolute pants at least 2 of the goals at Oxford we’re down to him get shot asap
