Northumberland-born striker Cullen joined City at 16 years of age and had made his first team debut, and scored a Premier League goal, before his 18th birthday. Cullen played a support role under Nigel Pearson but was farmed out on loan by Steve Bruce and left City in 2013.
Cullen joined Luton Town in May 2013 and had two successful seasons with the Hatters as they won promotion from the Conference then spent a season in the upper reaches of League Two. Cullen contributed a goal every 3 games during this spell. In June 2015 Blackpool parted with £180,000 to sign Cullen, and his football continued to thrive despite the open warfare between owners and fans off the pitch. In 2017 Cullen scored the winning goal at Wembley that sealed the Tangerines’ play-off promotion to League One. After that high point Cullen’s first team chances were reduced and in June 2019 he switched to Port Vale. He made 48 appearances and scored 11 goals in two seasons at Vale Park, then in August 2021 he signed for Hartlepool United as the North East side returned to the Football League.
