West Ham midfielder Josh Cullen is set to join Bradford on a six-month loan deal, according to a report.

Sky Sport claimed on their transfer centre blog on Monday (8.48am) that the central midfielder has agreed the terms of a move to the League One club until January.

It is said that the deal will be completed later on Monday.

The 20-year-old  featured for West Ham in their 3-2 pre-season friendly defeat to Juventus on Sunday but is set to leave the Hammers in search of regular first-team football.

The young central midfielder spent the second half of last season at Bradford on a three-month loan deal and was very impressive, making 17 appearances for the side as they surged into the play-offs.

Bradford have convinced West Ham to allow the Republic of Ireland U21 international to re-join on a temporary basis.

The youngster born in Westcliffe-on-Sea is eligible to play for both England and the Republic of Ireland internationally.

He made one appearance for the England Under-16 side before going on to represent the Irish Under-19s and Under-21s side, and made eight appearances for each of the two age-group teams.

The West Ham academy graduate has made four appearances for the senior side, which include three appearances in the 2015-16 Europa League campaign and one appearance in the Premier League.

In other West Ham transfer news, their negotiations over a new defender have collapsed.
