Josh Cullen: West Ham wanted to keep me

Josh Cullen has revealed West Ham United wanted to keep him at the club for this season.

The midfielder returned to Charlton Athletic for a second loan spell after helping the club earn promotion to the Championship.

The midfielder told The Athletic: "I was here on loan last season and then all through pre-season, it seemed like I wasn't going to go out on loan again because West Ham wanted me to stay.

"But then, come the end of the window, we all decided it would be best if I went out to get some regular game time in the Championship.

"I just felt like, knowing the manager, knowing the way he wants his team to play and knowing how much I enjoyed playing under him last season, it would be the right decision to come back, and I've loved every minute since I've been back."
