City Sign Cullen on Loan

West Ham Midfielder Joins City on Loan

Bradford City have this morning confirmed the loan signing of West Ham United player Josh Cullen until January 2017. It’s a welcome return to Valley Parade for Cullen, after the midfielder spent time on loan at the Bantams last season having made his debut against Peterborough United.

The ball-playing central midfielder will certainly need no introduction to the vast majority of City supporters after a highly successful first loan spell with the club during the second half of last season.

Cullen started in the official opening game for West Ham’s new London Stadium against Juventus on Sunday, playing eighty-three minutes against the Italian champions. He was also an unused substitute in both legs of the Hammers’ recent UEFA Europa qualifying third round success over Slovenian side NK Domzale.

Speaking about his return to the club Josh Cullen said, “I really enjoyed my time at City last season and it was a no brainer really for me to return. Once I knew the club were interested in bringing me back and I am excited at the prospect of trying to push the club on again.

Having played in the semi finals of the play-offs last season for the club, it almost felt like unfinished business here for me. The fans, players and the staff were all brilliant with me first time around and I feel really comfortable at the club

Obviously in the summer I didn’t know exactly what my situation was going to be for this year, but as soon as I knew West Ham were allowing me to come to Bradford City, I was straight in the car to get up here.

West Ham were really happy with the way Bradford treated me and Reece Burke last season,this is a great club and I am really happy to be back.”
