According to a report from Football.London, West Ham boss David Moyes could sell Josh Cullen this summer. And that will be good news for Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa.

The Argentine reportedly wants to sign the midfielder (Daily Mail). And it seems as though he might just be able to get his hands on him now.
The Hammers have a lot of work to do in the transfer market this summer.
Moyes will undoubtedly want to bolster his ranks at the London Stadium. But the Scot will have a limited budget this summer. So in order to bring in the players he wants, he might just have to sell some players to raise some cash first.
That will mean clearing out some of the deadwood.
And according to Football.London, Josh Cullen could be one of those who are sacrificed at the end of this season.
West Ham exit closing in for midfielder?
The 24-year-old midfielder is currently on loan with Championship side Charlton Athletic.
The Daily Mail reported last month that Leeds, West Brom, Bournemouth and Norwich City are all keen to sign the Hammers man.
Cullen’s contract with West Ham is actually set to expire in the summer.
But the Hammers have an option to extend that deal by 12 months, according to Football Insider.
So perhaps the east London outfit will take up that option, before moving him on, in order to avoid losing him for nothing.
Cullen has made 25 Championship appearances for Charlton this season. He has racked up just one goal and one assist during those outings (Transfermarkt).
The Republic of Ireland international is a decent player. But considering his age, he will probably not make it at the very highest level now.
And a move to Leeds might be the ideal step for the 24-year-old West Ham man to take next.
