Bradford City outline transfer plans, fans will love this

Bradford City have released a statement confirming that Stuart McCall will remain as the club’s manager next season, and that he will have a healthy transfer kitty to spend over the course of the summer.

The Bantams missed out on promotion to the Sky Bet Championship last season, suffering a 1-0 defeat to Millwall in the play-off final at Wembley, meaning the club’s wait for a return to the second-tier stretches into a 14th year.

McCall’s side finished the regular season fifth, six-points ahead of Millwall who finished sixth.

Despite the disappointment of the play-off final defeat, Bradford’s board have released a statement confirming that any money form player sales and the trip to Wembley will be spent on bolstering McCall’s squad this summer.

An extract from the statement read: “The money received from player transfers and our trip to Wembley will be re-invested in the squad, on the right players when the time is right.

“We have shown our commitment to investing money in players as recently as January with the £250,000 signing of Charlie Wyke.”

Bradford have already sold Billy Clarke to Charlton Athletic this summer, whilst the Bantams are also set to benefit from the success of two former players.

Nahki Wells’ promotion to the Premier League will see Bradford receive add-ons from his transfer to Huddersfield Town in January 2014, and Andre Wisdom’s pending departure from Liverpool could also land the club around a £250k sell-on fee.
