Bradford City looking to sign 22-year-old Premier League defender

Published

Luke Hendrie looks set to join Bradford City on-loan from Burnley later this week, reports BBC Radio Leeds, via West Yorkshire Sport.

 The right-back, who was previously on Derby County’s books, has never made a senior appearance for Burnley, as Sean Dyche’s team continue to establish themselves in the top-flight.

Hendrie has spent time on-loan away from Turf Moor over the last two-years, spending time in Sky Bet League Two with Hartlepool United and York City during the 2015/16 campaign.

Last year, the 22-year-old made 32 appearances for Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership, helping the club to eighth in the Scottish top-flight.

Hendrie is the son of former Bradford forward, John – who also had spells with Newcastle United and Leeds United during a successful playing career.

Stuart McCall is looking to strengthen his current Bradford team between now and the end of the transfer window, as he aims to help the Bantams bounce back in League One, following last season’s play-off final defeat.

So far this season, Bradford have won two of their four League One fixtures and lost the other two.

McCall’s side are currently seventh in the League One table following Saturday’s defeat to Blackburn Rovers.

The Bantams are back in action on Saturday, when they face Walsall.

The Verdict  

After many departures this summer, Bradford’s squad certainly needed bolstering before the end of the transfer window, so supporters will be pleased to see McCall moving.

Hendrie is yet to properly prove himself in English football, but will have gained valuable experience whilst on-loan in Scotland last year.

Bradford’s supporters will be encouraged by the level of club who has put their faith in Hendrie previously, particularly Burnley, who have been a Premier League club for most of the defender’s time there.
