West Ham United loanee Josh Cullen on returning to Bradford City and his start to life at Charlton

West Ham United loanee Josh Cullen is ready to ‘kick on’ at Charlton after returning from international duty.

The talented midfielder made his Addicks bow in our 2-1 victory at Southend United a fortnight ago – and grabbed the assist for Krystian Bielik’s winner – before heading off with Ireland U21s.

And now back in south-east London, he is ready to help his clubmates, starting in Saturday’s trip to his former club Bradford City.

“I’m looking forward to going back [to Bradford] but I’ll treat it as any other game,” the 22-year-old said. “It doesn’t matter who we are playing against but it will be nice to go back and see a few familiar faces.

“Hopefully after the game we will be coming back down to London with three points and it will be a good day for all of our traveling fans.”

Cullen continued: “It’s been a bit of a strange start for me. Obviously, I was in training for the two days before Southend, once I’d signed, and we got a good win there. Since then I’ve been on international duty, so I’ve almost been in and said ‘hello’, got to know all the lads and staff and then been off again.

“It’s good to be back and I’m looking forward to kicking on now. Normally at a new club you start to settle in and feel comfortable after your first game. I’ve had that game but then I went away but now I’m looking forward to Saturday.”
