Bantams boss Phil Parkinson is looking to add some width to his squad after releasing Mark Yeates and Andrew Halliday at the end of the season.

The 27-year-old is available on a free transfer after being released by Yeovil following their relegation to League Two. He joined the Glovers in the summer of 2013 and scored six goals in 55 appearances.

The winger is currently away on international duty with Jamaica as they prepare to face holders Uruguay in the Copa America on Saturday, and FLW understands the deal to join the Valley Parade outfit will be completed after the tournament.

Born in Acton, London, Grant began his career at Watford after progressing through the youth ranks but only made seven appearances in two years at Vicarage Road.

He joined Aldershot Town following his release from the Hornets in 2007 and was later signed by Crewe Alexandra for £130,000 in 2008, which is the record sale for a player at Aldershot.

The winger scored 16 goals in nearly a century of appearances for the Railwaymen in three years at Gresty Road.

Grant moved on to Wycombe Wanderers on a free transfer in 2011 before joining Yeovil two years later.
