The 24-year-old Hammers owned ace has spent the last two seasons on loan with the Addicks.
And Cullen has really impressed at The Valley. He has racked up two goals and eight assists in 59 games for Charlton (Transfermarkt).
West Ham boss David Moyes will surely want to bring Cullen back to the London Stadium next season.
And that will be a big blow to Bowyer and Charlton.
The Canning Town born manager raved about the 24-year-old after he provided an assist during Charlton’s 1-0 win over QPR on Saturday, as quoted by Football.London:
“Josh Cullen has been excellent for the two years he has been working with me. Every single game, he’s outstanding, very rarely does he do anything wrong. Again he protected the back four so well in the middle of the park, Josh doesn’t really give the ball he tidies things up, he breaks things up well. He was outstanding.”
Cullen hasn’t played a senior game for West Ham since April 2018. But the way things are going, he could have a role to play for the east London outfit next season.
Because of the financial impact of the global health crisis, the Hammers won’t have lavish funds to spend in the summer transfer window.
And central midfield is certainly an area that David Moyes needs to strengthen.
The 24-year-old has had two years experience of playing regular first-team football.
So the option to bring back Cullen for no cost will be a much welcome one for Moyes. Let’s just hope that the midfielder has what it takes to make a difference for West Ham in the Premier League.
