Bradford City facing League One competition in race for third-tier striker



Bradford City and AFC Wimbledon are both keen on a late January move for Oxford United striker Dan Agyei, journalist Pete O’Rourke has reported.

Agyei joined Oxford from Premier League side Burnley back in the summer transfer window, and has so far made 14 appearances in all competitions for the clubs, scoring once.

It now seems as though Agyei could be set for a swift departure from the Kassam Stadium, with O’Rourke’s latest update revealing Bradford and Wimbledon could make late swoops for the 22-year-old.

Wimbledon are currently 19th in the League One standings, six points clear of the relegation zone while Bradford, who suffered relegation from the third-tier last season, are currently seventh in League Two table, five points adrift of the automatic promotion spots.

Agyei made three Premier League appearances during his time at Burnely, and also has past experience in the Football League from loan spells with Blackpool and Walsall.

The striker signed a three-year deal with Oxford during the summer, securing his future at the club until the end of the 2021/22 season.

The Verdict

This is an interesting one.

With so much time remaining on his deal, Oxford are under no pressure to sell Agyei in the final hours of the summer transfer window.

However, with Agyei’s game time in the league not exactly forthcoming this season, you do wonder whether they may be willing to let the youngster leave, even after such a short time at the club.

Indeed, having seen Eoin Doyle and James Vaughan leave Valley Parade in the past few days, Bradford in particular are a club who it could be argued could be well served by adding to their attacking options before the window closes.
