Charlton have re-signed West Ham United's Josh Cullen on a season-long loan.

The 23-year-old returns to the club where he spent a successful 2018/19 season, helping Lee Bowyer's men to promotion from League One.

Playing 32 games for the Addicks and scoring one goal in a 2-0 away win at Gillingham, the midfielder established himself as a fan favourite and will wear the number 24 jersey again.

On returning to the club manager Lee Bowyer expressed his delight in the capture of the man who provided the all important assist for Pat Bauer's dramatic last second promotion clinching winner at Wembley in may.

"I didn’t think Josh was a possibility," he told CAFC.

"I’m pleased to have someone with Josh’s ability, we saw how much he improved last year and what he brought to our team.

"We know he will give us 100 per cent every time he trains and plays, he’s a great lad all around.”

Despite admitting at the start of the transfer window that re-signing the Ireland international would be difficult, Head Of Recruitment Steve Gallen revealed it was a deal they were hopeful for,

“I’m so happy about this signing," Gallen said.

"We’ve not let this go all summer. I’ve been chipping away at this every single day to make this happen.

"There have been days and weeks where you think it is definitely not happening but when we found out yesterday there was a slim chance, we were on it in a flash.”
