Josh Cullen has signed a new professional contract with West Ham - just three days after being sent to Bolton on loan.

Cullen and stable mate Reece Burke have both joined the Totters on an initial half-season loan, but not before the former put pen to paper on a new contract that ties the youngster to the club until 2020.

Writing via his twitter profile, Cullen revealed the big news earlier today (Thursday).

"Pleased to have joined @OfficialBWFC on loan! Looking forward to getting the season started," he wrote, before adding: "Also delighted to have signed a new deal with @WestHamUtd ⚒ Excited to see what the future holds."

The 21-year-old has previously spent two spells on loan at Bradford in the last two seasons and was named as the Bantams' Player of the Year for their most recent campaign (2016/17).

Speaking back in May, Cullen stressed that he was hoping to win a place in Slaven Bilic's first team squad this season. "The whole process of me going out on loan is to try and get in West Hamís first team," he told the Yorkshire Post.

"Hopefully, I will be in West Hamís plans. If not, then a Championship club is probably the next step for me."
