Ireland U21 team captain Josh Cullen will go out on loan from West Ham to gain first team experience.

Cullen was loaned out to Bradford City last term but ahead of their return to the Championship, Bolton have secured him on a six-month loan deal. "It's brilliant to be here and I'm raring to go," says the midfielder.

"I'm now coming to a Championship club and looking to make the next step. Hopefully we can kick on and go on to have a successful season."

Meanwhile, Brighton boss Chris Hughton has confirmed that Richie Towell will be one of three players sent out on loan this season.

"I am confident all three will go but they are good individuals, they train very well," said Hughton after Towell and team-mates Rohan Ince and Kazenga LuaLua were not involved in a weekend pre-season friendly for the first team. "They've trained with us, so it's no harm having them around, but certainly for their futures it's very much better for them to be going out on loan.
