Bradford City are reportedly eyeing a loan swoop for Portsmouth goalkeeper Luke McGee according to journalist Alan Nixon.
Bradford City. In for Luke McGee. Portsmouth keeper. Loan.

McGee is currently with Kenny Jackett’s side, but has is yet to make a single appearance for the first team this season, which will be hugely frustrating for the shot-stopper.
The 24-year-old has previously been on the books with Tottenham Hotspur, but it was a similar story as he failed to feature for the senior side.
Bradford are currently sat sixth in the League Two table, and will be hoping they can make a swift return to the third tier this season under the management of Gary Bowyer.
The Bantams were relegated from League One last season after a hugely disappointing spell, but they’ll be pleased with the strong first-half of the season that they’ve had to date.
Bowyer’s side are next in action at the weekend when they take on Scunthorpe United, in a game that they’ll be expected to come away with three points from.

This could be a smart bit of business.
McGee was previously on the books at Tottenham Hotspur, and has played in League One for a couple of seasons now, so I think he would be a really good signing by Bradford if they can get this loan deal over the line.
Richard O’Donnell could do with some good competition between the posts for the remainder of this year’s campaign, and I certainly think that McGee would challenge him for his starting spot if he arrived at Valley Parade.
Nixon also revealed that O’Donnell might have an injury, so they’re making a smart move in targeting McGee this month.
