Pellegrini to keep faith with Josh Cullen, West Ham United fans react

West Ham United manager Manuel Pellegrini has been very busy in the transfer window so far this summer.

The Chilean has already recruited seven new players to kickstart his term in charge of the East London outfit.

Jack Wilshere and Andriy Yarmolenko are among them, while Felipe Anderson is the most recent to join the pack.

With this many new faces arriving at the London Stadium, it may feel daunting to some of the younger talent already at the club.

Josh Cullen was picked up by the Hammers’ academy in 2010 and went on to make his first-team debut in July 2015.

Since then, the midfielder has had loan spells at Bradford City and Bolton Wanderers, where he spent last season.

The 22-year-old made just 12 Championship appearances, nine of which were starts.

This summer there were rumblings that Cullen could be set for another loan spell, but according to club insider ExWHUemployee, Pellegrini has been left impressed by the midfielder and intends to keep him.

It is rather unusual for Pellegrini to put faith in young stars, so Cullen must be doing a very good job in training.

Fans have been tweeting their reactions to the news.
