New Cullen deal may be on cards

Josh Cullen’s future could still be at West Ham next season as he continues to impress at Charlton on loan.

The 23 year old midfielder – having made 11 appearances at Championship club Charlton on loan this term – is being closely monitored by the Hammers as he goes into the last few months of his current contract.

That is understood to be worth around £5k a week and with Carlos Sanchez looking certain leave at the end of his it looks  possible that the Hammers will offer him a new deal.

The 23 year old played a major part in the Addicks rise to the Championship while on loan at the Valley last season and there are likely to be a number of clubs after him on a free.

But A Hammers source told ClaretandHugh by e mail: “Obviously he has a chance of landing a new deal – decisions will be made nearer the end of the season.” 

The cash-strapped south Londoners failed to cover the player’s wages entirely last season but were so keen for him to rejoin them for a tilt at the Premier League this season that were ready to cover them this time around.
