Middlesborough will hope that Tony Pulis has what it takes to get Boro back into the Premier League this season after welcoming a good number of new signings.
After last season failing to gain promotion, that aim will instead hopefully be possible this season. Tony Pulis is a man that knows what to do in terms of football management and that will be key if Middlesborough hold a chance of escaping out of one of the hardest league’s in world football.
A midfielder has been on the radar for Pulis and Boro but someone they haven’t yet considered and should is West Ham’s Josh Cullen – who is valued at £900,000 on Transfermarkt.
The terrier-like midfielder impressed West Ham’s new boss Manuel Pellegrini during pre-season but after the Hammers recruited Jack Wilshere and Carlos Sanchez who are also central-midfielders, it’s feared by Cullen himself that game-time may be hard to come by.
That’s where Middlesborough come in. From the outside a move for both these parties seems like a good idea, considering that Cullen is hungry to play and show his parent club West Ham what he is really capable of. Boro also surely want a midfielder having been after Everton’s Mo Besic, (who was on-loan at the Riverside last season) and Josh Cullen would provide a lot of hard work and determination for the badge. Not only that, Cullen has a great passing range and should he reach the levels he did when on-loan with Bradford a couple of years ago, Middlesborough could pick themselves up a gem.
The 22-year-old could link up with a Hammer who is already on-loan to Middlesborough in the form of Jordan Hugill.
Would this be a good move for Middlesborough and Josh Cullen… Let us know!
