City Bring In Hammers Youngster On Loan

Josh Cullen

Josh Cullen signs a one month loan.

Bradford City have bolstered their midfield options.

The Bantams have signed West Ham teenager Josh Cullen on a one-month loan deal.

Cullen penned a loan contract at City this Thursday which will keep him at the Coral Windows Stadium initially until March 12.

The central midfielder will wear squad number 12 during his time at Valley Parade.

Manager Phil Parkinson told the club's website: "We are delighted to have Josh on board.

"He has signed his paperwork and trained with the lads, 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. He goes straight into the squad for Saturday (vs Peterborough United)."

The 19-year-old made his Premier League debut as a late substitute in West Ham's 3-0 win at Liverpool at the start of this season.

He also has five caps to his name at Under 21 level for the Republic of Ireland.

City play Peterborough United on Saturday with full match commentary on Pulse 1 & Pulse 2.
