Cullen contract extension is a blow

Many Charlton fans think that Josh Cullen is one of our best players and want to see him sign for us permanently. But now West Ham have extended his contract for another year, making him a lot more expensive to purchase: Outlines his future intentions

Cullen himself emphasised that his long-term plan had always been to improve at Charlton and go back and play at West Ham. Ironically, West Ham are at some risk of being relegated.

The SLP's Richard Cawley has commented: 'That's a definite blow to Charlton fans, who had hoped he could be snapped up. Fact is he'll cost a fee + increased wages. Doesn't look anything like a goer at the moment.'

Once a club gets a new owner, clubs demand more for their players and the players themselves want higher wages. Bargain basement clearout deals, which might contain a hidden gem, are no longer available.
