Josh Cullen Signs for City
Bradford City have today confirmed they have bolstered their midfield options ahead of Saturday’s trip to Peterborough United, by signing Josh Cullen on a one-month loan deal from Premier League side West Ham United.
Cullen penned a loan contract this morning which will keep him at the Coral Windows Stadium initially until the 12th March 2016. The central midfielder will wear squad number 12 during his time at Valley Parade.
After featuring twice as an unused sub last season in West Ham’s Premier League games at Arsenal and Aston Villa, Cullen made his senior debut for the Hammers last July in their UEFA Europa League qualifier with FC Lustians.
The nineteen year-old made three appearances in total for West Ham in Europe over the summer. He also has five caps to his name at Under 21 level for the Republic of Ireland, the most recent of which came as recently as November against Lithuania.
Speaking about Cullen’s arrival, Bradford manager Phil Parkinson said: “We are delighted to have Josh on board. He has signed his paperwork and trained with the lads today and we look forward to working with him.
Obviously we have Reece Burke here on loan from West Ham already and we hope that Josh can settle in just as well as he has. Josh has been in and around the first team environment at West Ham and has been on the bench several times so he is mature for his age.”
