Stoke City, Hull City and Bristol City are all keen on Swansea City’s Liam Cullen, reporter Darren Witcoop has said on X.
Swansea City forward Cullen has been at the centre of some speculation for a little while now. He drew interest in the summer transfer window and last month, it was claimed that Blackburn Rovers were eyeing up a winter move.
The 24-year-old is out of contract next summer and now, he’s said to have more Championship clubs on his tail. Reporter Witcoop has said on X that Stoke City, Hull City and Bristol City are all keen on Cullen as his deal winds down.

Michael Duff confirmed that the Swansea man has begun talks over his contract situation. The matter has been discussed between Cullen’s representatives and sporting director Paul Watson, but time will tell if it leads to an agreement over a new deal.
It has been said that a 12-month contract is included in his current deal, potentially protecting his immediate future. However, the Swans may well be keen to secure his future beyond that given the Stoke City, Hull City and Bristol City interest.
One to watch?
Cullen has started the last seven Championship games for Swansea City, so it seems he has a place in Duff’s plans in South Wales moving forward. With the likes of Stoke City keen though and Blackburn Rovers previously said to be holding an interest, the Welshman isn’t short of options elsewhere either.
His involvement with the Swans has been patchy at times, as has his form. He’s still notched 14 goals and five assists in 85 games for the club though, a respectable return for a player operating anywhere across the front three or in attacking midfield.
Cullen’s situation will be one to keep an eye on over the coming weeks and months. Swansea City seem keen to tie down his services, but options at other second-tier sides could prove tempting.
