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.”
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.
