West Ham United have hit a snag in the potential transfer of youngster Josh Cullen as Chartlon Athletic disagree with their £2million price tag, according to Claret and Hugh.

It is reported that the League One outfit are looking to spent £500,000 on the 22-year-old, a quarter of what the Hammers are looking to re-coup on the youngster.

Cullen has worked his way through West Ham’s academy but has spent the majority of his career on loan, making just nine appearances for the club.

He impressed in two spells with Bradford, featuring 64 times in the third tier between 2016 and 2017.

Before that move, Cullen made his Premier League debut from the bench in a 3-0 victory over Liverpool having also featured in the Europa League three times for the Hammers.

Last season he made 12 appearances for Bolton in the Championship before returning to the London Stadium in January, as the youngster was called upon five times in both the FA Cup and Premier League.

This year while at Charlton, Cullen has impressed in his six outings for the club, so much so that Lee Bowyer wants to bring the 22-year-old to The Valley permanently.

West Ham may be forced to lower their price tag if they are to cash in on the youngster though, who could leave the club as early as the January transfer window.
