Josh Cullen extends loan until end of 2019/20 campaign

Josh Cullen’s loan from West Ham United has been extended until the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

The midfielder’s season-long loan was initially due to expire at the end of June, but the deal has been extended to allow Cullen to play all nine of Charlton remaining Championship fixtures.

“It was quite straightforward for all parties involved,” explained the Republic of Ireland international.

 “There is still a job to be done. There are nine massive games to go and it was always in my head to be a part of that. You want to finish what you started and it’s been a long journey up until now, but it’s not finished.

“It was a straightforward decision and I feel like I owe it to the club. The fans have backed me from day one and been brilliant to me.

“Everyone around the club, the manager, the staff and the players are all fighting for the same goal so I’m really looking forward to the season getting restarted and finishing strong.”

Addicks boss Lee Bowyer added: “I think all the Charlton fans will know how important Josh is for us, so I’m pleased to have him with us until the end of the season and we’d like to thank West Ham for making it happen.

“He has a winning attitude and the energy, determination and quality on the ball he possesses help us both in and out of possession.”
