Done Deal: Bradford City loan Championship striker



League One play-off hopefuls Bradford City have brought in Birmingham City striker Wes Thomas on a loan deal until the end of April, the club have confirmed on their official website.


The 29-year-old netted has scored 11 goals in 50 matches across two spells for the Blues, despite featuring mainly as a substitute in his time at St. Andrew’s.

After bagging a brace in the League Cup tie with Gillingham in August he has spent the last few months on loan at Swindon Town on loan, where he scored twice in six appearances.

Bradford manager Phil Parkinson has admitted that he was delighted to have been able to add Thomas to his attacking options, telling the club’s website: “We are delighted to have brought Wes here. He is a player who likes to run in behind, he’s played well off target men in the past.

“He is a player who suits what we need at the moment – he is a good fit. We are confident he will be a good acquisition for us.”

The Bantams have become the 15th club of Thomas’ professional career, with the striker expected to go straight into Parkinson’s squad for Saturday’s match against Fleetwood Town.

Bradford are currently 11th in League One, just five points off a play-off spot.
