Lee Bowyer admits he would like to sign Josh Cullen permanently

Charlton Athletic have put in a number of impressive performances in League One this season, however, a number of mistakes have proved costly this season.

Lee Bowyer, who was officially given the role permanently earlier in the year, and his side enjoyed a rare break at the weekend and will be looking for his side to make the most of their advantage.

One man that has made the Addicks better this season is Josh Cullen, who joined on loan from West Ham United.

There have been transfer links surrounding the young Irishman with a permanent move to The Valley, with Bowyer admitting he would like to make that happen, however, revealed that there could be a problem in making a deal.

Speaking to London News Online, he said: “Obviously if they were interested in selling him then we would be interested in taking him.

“He has definitely improved us. He is a very good player, for sure.

“The problem we would probably have would be his wages. That could be a problem – we’ve got a budget. But maybe the owner or the new people, if they come in, might find it doable.”

The Verdict:

There is no doubt that Cullen has helped to significantly improve Charlton this season and their efforts in trying to achieve promotion to the Championship.

The 22-year-old has managed to provide two assists in his five League One starts and with his contract at West Ham set to expire, then the Addicks must look at making a move to keep him permanently.

However, wages could be an issue and whilst the club are thought to be going through the process of a takeover, it remains to be seen if the club will do all they can to bring him to south London on a full-time basis.
