Report: Leeds United competing for player his international teammate said is ‘different class’

According to The Daily Mail, Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion are among the clubs interested in signing Josh Cullen from West Ham United in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that Premier League clubs Bournemouth and Norwich City are also taking a keen interest in the 23-year-old midfielder.

West Ham have already taken up the option to extend the youngster’s deal until the summer of 2021, but they have yet to reach an agreement over a long-term contract, according to report.

Impressive performances

Cullen has been on loan at Charlton since 2018, and this season, the midfielder has been playing well for the Addicks.

According to WhoScored, the 23-year-old has scored one goal and provided one assist in 25 Championship appearances for Charlton so far this season.

Highly rated

Cullen may have failed to make a huge impact at West Ham, but the youngster has already played twice for the Republic of Ireland national football team.

Everton and Republic of Ireland international right-back Seamus Coleman raved about the midfielder back in June 2019.

Coleman told Sky Sports about Cullen: “He’s been different class, he is just very brave wants to get the ball back and pass it forward, he has been impressive and he’s a great lad around the camp as well.”
