According to club insider ExWHUEmployee, midfielder Josh Cullen is expected to be sold by West Ham United in this summer’s transfer window.
Cullen came through the youth system at West Ham, and has made nine first-team appearances for the London club since debuting back in 2015.
The 22-year-old made five appearances for the Hammers last term, but also spent part of the campaign on loan with Bolton Wanderers in the Championship.
According to club insider ExWHUEmployee, Cullen is not in the plans of West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini ahead of the new season, and could therefore be sold this summer.
The club’s supporters have been reacting to the news on social media, and it would be fair to say that they are struggling to agree whether the Hammers should get rid.
Cullen is no longer a spring chicken – relatively speaking of course – and it does appear that he will have to move on in search of regular first-team action.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the West Ham fans can be seen below:
