Cullen, 24, really impressed during pre-season after returning from a successful loan spell with Charlton Athletic.

But he clearly hasn’t done enough to impress David Moyes, with the Scot ignoring the midfielder in all three Premier League games thus far.

Cullen is a silky midfielder with great passing abilities. The West Ham fans absolutely love the 24-year-old. And it would be a real shame if he were to be moved on before Monday’s deadline.

But it seems as though there is a chance that is exactly what could happen.

Daily Mail reporter Adrian Kajumba claims Anderlecht are hoping to get a deal wrapped up for Cullen before the transfer window closes on Monday:

Cullen proved his class last season, showcasing his undoubted ability on a consistent basis in the Championship with Charlton.

He racked up one goal and two assists in 34 league games for the Addicks. In those appearances, the 24-year-old averaged 44.9 passes per game with an impressive completion rate of 83%. He also averaged 1.6 key passes per game (Who Scored).

There is no mention of what kind of transfer fee Anderlecht are prepared to pay for Cullen. But whatever the fee, the sale of another one of our homegrown talents will certainly not go down well in east London.
