    RSC Anderlecht have confirmed the signing of 23-year-old Irish midfielder Josh Cullen from West Ham for a reported fee of £800,000.

    Cullen returned to the Hammers after two successful loan spells at Charlton Athletic, where he made 63 appearances for the club as well as providing the assist for Patrick Bauer's late Play-Off Final winner.

    Hammers boss David Moyes gave all returning players a clean slate to prove themselves, and unfortunately for Cullen, he is the latest West Ham academy product to leave the club.

    Jack Wilshere's top level career could be over as he nears cancelling his contract with West Ham by mutual consent.

    Wilshere, 28, has made just 16 appearances for the Hammers since agreeing a three-year £15.6million contract with the club in 2018.

    The England midfielder has been blighted by the ankle injury which wrecked his final years at Arsenal and West Ham want to pay him up to save on his £100,000-a-week wages.

    Talks have been going on between club and player since the summer and are now close to being finalised.

    And having been blighted by fitness worries for much of the last six years there is now a risk Wilshere will not be able to find a club willing to take him on.

    Alex Telles completed his move to Manchester United and insisted there is a long term plan at the club to win trophies.

    The 27-year-old Brazilian international signed from Porto for £13.6million rising to £15.4million based on his achievements.

    The left full-back signed a four-year deal and inists he will bring a wealth of experience in Europe with him to Old Trafford.

    Telles said: “I won many trophies at FC Porto and I want to continue that at United. The manager has a clear plan and direction for this team and I can’t wait to pull on the famous shirt.

    “To join a club with the prestige of Manchester United is a huge honour. You have to work hard to get to this moment in your career and now I am coming to this club, I can promise that I will give everything in my heart to be a success here.”

    He will be a much needed addition to a back four that has conceded 11 goals in three league games including Sunday’s 6-1 home drubbing at the hands of Spurs, that left Ole Solskjaer bemoaning he worst day of his football career.

    He was a bit more upbeat yesterday as another signing was finally made to add to the £40million acquisition of Donny van de Beek.

    Solskjaer said: “He is a player we have been tracking for some time and his performances over the past few years are exactly what we are looking for. He is a fighter and a winner and will add real determination and competition to the squad.

    “Alex has the qualities, both as a player and as a person, that we want here at Manchester United.”

    While a full-back he is certainly a force going forward to as over the past five seasons he has provided more than 50 assists for his team and scored 26 goals.

    He is a title winner in Turkey with Galatasaray as well as in Portugal.
