According to a report from the Daily Mail, Leeds, West Brom, Bournemouth and Norwich City are all interested in signing West Ham ace Josh Cullen in the summer.

The 23-year-old midfielder began his career with the Hammers, but he has spent most of his time away from east London on loan.

He is currently on loan with Charlton.

Cullen, a two-capped Republic of Ireland international, has racked up one goal and one assist in 25 Championship outings for the Addicks this season (Transfermarkt).

During those outings, the West Ham owned midfielder has a very impressive pass accuracy rate of 83.2%. He has also averaged 1.8 tackles, 1.2 interceptions and 1.5 clearances per game (Who Scored).

 

Cullen is a decent player. But there are question marks as to whether or not he has what it takes to make it in the Premier League.

Cullen’s contract with West Ham expires in the summer, but the east London outfit have an option of extending that deal by a further year (Daily Mail).

So it might just be in the Hammers’ best interest to do just that, before starting a bidding war between the likes of Leeds and West Brom for the midfielder’s signature in the summer.

Quite how much West Ham will demand for the 23-year-old, however, remains to be seen.
