West Ham United midfielder Josh Cullen has signed a new three year deal with the club.

The club’s official website mentioned the new contract in an article today.

This was confirmed by the young central midfielder, who tweeted his delight at putting pen to paper on a new three deal with the Hammers.

Many West Ham fans were hoping to see Josh Cullen in action next season.

However, the 21-year-old has been sent out on loan to Championship new boys Bolton Wanderers until January.

Cullen has reunited with Phil Parkinson, who was his manager during his first loan stint at Bradford City, and he moves to the Macron Stadium alongside fellow young Hammer Reece Burke.

The Republic of Ireland under-21 international was voted Bradford’s Player of the Year last term and he caught the eye with some mature and tidy midfield displays in pre-season.

However, Slaven Bilic has decided that Cullen needs another five months out on loan to aid his development, hoping that the youngster will be ready to make an impact in the first team at the start of 2018.

Josh Cullen was pleased to sign a new contract at West Ham.

Speaking to, the West Ham starlet said:

“I’ve signed a new contract, so that’s good, and I’ll keep playing games and hopefully come back in January or next season and play for West Ham, because that’s my dream and what I’ll continue to try and do.”
