As reported by Peterborough today, Peterborough United have missed out on the loan signing of West Ham United’s Josh Cullen, who is set to stay with Bolton Wanderers for the rest of the season.

Former Wanderers striker Barry Fry, who is now Director of Football at Peterborough, told Peterborough today:

“I thought I had the Cullen deal sewn up. West Ham’s owners had been very helpful, but Bolton have suddenly started picking him and he is now going to stay there. It’s very frustrating as he was a top player for Bradford last season. He was our number one target for midfield, but we will have to look elsewhere now.”

Cullen played a vital role in both of Wanderers’ recent wins against Sheffield United and Hull City, his first games for Bolton since October.

Josh Cullen has so far played twelve times for Wanderers this season, and looks to be remaining at The Macron alongside fellow loanees Reece Burke, Everton’s Antonee Robinson and Newcastle United’s Adam Armstrong.
