Josh Cullen moved from Premier League West Ham United to League One Charlton Athletic on loan and really impressed under Lee Bowyer.

You have to feel for Josh Cullen.

The West Ham United midfielder was really making an impression during a loan spell at London neighbours Charlton Athletic, establishing himself as a fan favourite at The Valley. But his promising season has been cut short thanks to an injury that Addicks boss Lee Bowyer described as ‘unreal’.

Cullen hit the turf in Charlton’s 2-0 away win at Walsall on Tuesday, and it has now been confirmed that he has suffered a dislocated shoulder, which could keep him on the sidelines for four months.

The reaction from distraught Charlton supporters highlights just how impressive Cullen has been in League One.

What this means for Cullen’s future remains to be seen. It is no secret that Charlton would love to sign the dynamic midfielder on a permanent basis, although Bowyer admitted recently to London News Online that his wage demands could be a potential stumbling block.

Cullen himself, however, told the Standard in October that he would love to return to West Ham at the end of this season and force his way into Manuel Pellegrini’s first-team plans.
