Josh Cullen seems to be on his way back to England having left West Ham United to join Belgian side Anderlecht two years ago.

Cullen is set to join his former manager Vincent Kompany at Burnley for around £1.8 million according to Het Nieuwsblad.

The 26-year-old midfielder was sold by Hammers boss David Moyes to Anderlecht for just £900k in the summer of 2020.

And he has been a huge hit in Belgium.

Cullen had been with West Ham since he was just a young boy before he left to join Anderlecht.

Since moving to Lotto Park, Cullen has earned rave reviews.

The 26-year-old has been praised by Sport Foot Magazine who claim that his exceptional displays for Anderlecht have seen his value triple over the past year or so.

Ex-Anderlecht boss Vincent Kompany recently lauded the 20-capped Republic of Ireland international midfielder, as quoted by The 42:

“His team-mates are the ones who admire him the most because he only has one thing on his mind: the team. If the team wins, it’s because he did a lot of the jobs that the others cannot.”

And now Kompany is allegedly closing in on a reunion for the ex-West Ham midfielder…

We wish Josh all the best at Burnley, if he does indeed leave Anderlecht for Turf Moor this summer.

He is a very decent midfielder and will undoubtedly succeed with the Clarets under his former boss Vincent Kompany.

Unfortunately for him, he was never at the levels needed to play regular first-team football for West Ham at the London Stadium.

Josh Cullen will be a very good Championship player for Burnley though, we have no doubts about that.
