West Ham United had a very busy summer as new manager Manuel Pellegrini tried to shape his squad.
The former Manchester City boss brought in nine new faces following his appointment as David Moyes’s successor.
The Chilean strengthened all areas of the pitch, but the results have been less than desirable.
In three Premier League fixtures, the Hammers have lost all of them, including a 4-0 defeat to Liverpool, a 2-1 loss to Bournemouth and a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal.
Against the Gunners’, West Ham showed glimpses of quality, but there is still plenty of work for them to do in order to find their stride.
One man who will be unable to help the club’s effort is Josh Cullen, who on Thursday, completed a move to Charlton Athletic on loan.
The midfielder has come through the West Ham academy, but is yet to grab hold of a regular first-team spot.
The 22-year-old has had loan spells at Bradford City and Bolton Wanderers, and now he returns to League One for another temporary stint.
On Twitter, West Ham fans have been giving their thoughts.

If they are good enough bring them to the first team squad. All you read is our ‘Great’ Reserve or whatever they are called these days, loaned out. Bring them through, build up their confidence.. or Sell. Just a thought.

Poor lad needs to be given a chance in the first team

So much for no more outgoings. I’d liked him to stay & be given chances adds some pace & passing to mid. He loves West Ham too been he since a kid & done league 1 for 2 years very well rather see him abroad or Championship if not staying.
But always wish him the best⚒

He’s better than all our midfielders though
