West Ham United youngster Josh Cullen has extended his loan at Sky Bet League One side Bradford City until the end of the season.

The Academy prospect has been with the Bantams since August, adding 23 appearances to the first spell he had on loan with the Yorkshire club last season.

Cullen, 20, has made great strides during his time with Bradford, helping Stuart McCall's men reach the League One Play-Offs last term before playing a central role in their promotion effort in 2016/17.

The Ireland U21 international has already made four first team appearances for the Hammers, despite his tender years, and notched his first senior goal earlier this campaign - helping Bradford to a 2-1 win over Milton Keynes Dons.

Cullen is excited to be continuing his development with league football at Bradford, telling their official website: "It was quite an easy decision for me and I've enjoyed playing my football here. 

"Everything about the club - the staff, the players, the fans - they have all been brilliant with me both last season and this season so far."
