A number of West Ham United fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from The Telegraph over the weekend suggesting that Josh Cullen is attracting attention from two of the Hammers’ Premier League rivals.
Cullen is currently back at the London Stadium after enjoying two loan spells at Charlton Athletic. He may be targeting his first appearance for the Hammers since 2018.
However, it appears that he could actually be on the way out of the London Stadium while the transfer window is open.
The Telegraph reports that Crystal Palace and Fulham want the 24-year-old. It is suggested that it may only take a low fee for West Ham to sanction Cullen’s exit as he only has one year left on his contract.
Cullen is not exactly a youngster any longer. And it is perhaps an ominous sign that he has not made a first-team appearance for the club in more than two years.
Nevertheless, plenty of West Ham fans are clearly hoping that he goes nowhere. Cullen was hugely impressive at the Valley, and the supporters have high hopes for his future.
They would therefore, be hugely disappointed if he left the club this summer. Some clearly believe that he could have an important role to play should he stay with the Irons.
Here is how some of the West Ham fans reacted to the reports…
I’ve liked him for ages. Genuinely think he could be a great player for us. Has the energy and ability bit also the grit and attitude to be a very good west ham type player not a fancy Dan signing we keep trying to make bit never works out

I wouldn’t sell him. He’s a much better squad player than Sanchez, Jack will only be fit for 5 minutes, Mark won’t last a season and Declan???
