West Ham co-chairman David Gold praises 19-year-old talent Josh Cullen

West Ham - Upton Park: Boleyn Ground

The midfielder has been in good form for the Republic of Ireland under-21s recently.

West Ham United have plenty of top young talent coming through the ranks at the club. One youngster who is starting to really make a name for himself is Josh Cullen.

He recently made his West Ham debut in the comfortable Premier League win at Liverpool but it is at international level that he has really begun to shine.

He may have been born in Southend but the youngster represents the Republic of Ireland at international level.

He recently made his Republic of Ireland debut and was awarded man-of-the-match for a goalscoring display against Andorra. He picked up the MOTM gong once again for his performance in his second cap, a win against Lithuania on Friday.

He is now set to take on Italy this Tuesday where he will continue to try and impress for his nation.

He is clearly catching the eye. West Ham co-chairman David Gold has now Tweeted a message to the 19-year-old offering his support to the teenager:

Cullen signed a new deal at West Ham on transfer deadline day and it looks like he is pushing on to become a potential first-teamer in years to come.
