With less than a year left on his contract and David Moyes unable to guarantee Cullen the regular football he wants, the Hammers decided to accept Anderlecht’s offer.

The move to Anderlecht will see Cullen secure consistent top-flight game time.

But, with his potential in mind, West Ham have included a 20 per cent sell-on clause and an option to match any future offers Anderlecht receive for Cullen in the deal.

Cullen made his West Ham debut in 2015 and has gone on to make 10 senior appearances for the club, while enjoying successful loan spells at Bradford, Bolton and Charlton.
