Enner Valencia – Everton

Valencia played the second half of Everton’s 1-0 victory over Watford. The forward has scored 3 goals and provided one assist in just 4 Premier League starts this season, he has also made a further 16 appearances from the substitute bench.

Reece Oxford (Reading) did not feature in Reading’s 1-1 draw in the Royals play-off semi-final against Fulham. Oxford has only started 2 games since his loan move in January.

Josh Cullen (Bradford City) – Speaking to the West Yorkshire Sport prior to the Play-off semi-finals, Cullen recognised that he may not get his chance to break into the first team at West Ham. Cullen told West Yorkshire Sport “ My dream has always been to break into the first team at West Ham but I’m aware that might happen. If the move here (Bradford) suited me best I would have no problem because I’ve enjoyed my time at Bradford”

Cullen has only played 4 times for the Hammers but if the Republic of Ireland Under 21 international is forced to move on, he can look to fellow countrymen Ray Houghton and Matt Holland, who were youth players with the Hammers before leaving to gain first team experience elsewhere. Both Houghton and Holland had very successful club careers and represented the Republic in the World Cup Finals.
