Charlton Athletic have announced via their official website that Republic of Ireland international Josh Cullen has extended his loan deal to allow him to remain at The Valley for the rest of the 2019/20 campaign. 

This post on the Addicks’ official website states that Cullen’s loan deal had been set to expire at the end of June, however, now the 24-year-old midfielder has extended his stay and this will allow him to complete the 2019/20 Championship season, which is currently set to resume on the weekend of 20th June, with Charlton Athletic.

We will look at Marcelo Bielsa to kick off this quiz on the Championship's managers, which of these national teams has the Leeds United boss managed?

Cullen first joined the Addicks on loan for the 2018/19 campaign, making 29 appearances for the club in League One, in addition to three appearances in last season’s League One Play-Offs, to help the Addicks earn promotion to the Championship. The midfielder subsequently rejoined the club at the beginning of the current campaign, with the BBC quoting Addicks manager Lee Bowyer as saying that he was “pleased to have someone with Josh’s ability” in his squad. 

Will Cullen play an important role for the Addicks for the rest of the season?





TIF Thoughts…

Bowyer recently conducted an interview with TalkSPORT and in that interview, the 43-year-old coach revealed that three of his squad members, including the club’s top league goalscorer this season Lyle Taylor, would not be rejoining the Addicks for the remainder of the 2019/20 campaign. 

Considering that Charlton are already set to lose some of their players for the remainder of the season, as well as the fact that WhoScored rank Cullen as Charlton’s highest-rated player to have featured in more than one league game for the club this season, it may be fair to say that this news regarding the Irish midfielder may provide a boost to Charlton’s Championship survival hopes, with the club currently sitting inside the league’s relegation zone with nine games yet to be played in the 2019/20 campaign.
