Bradford City have signed free agent defender Nathan Clarke, the Bantams have confirmed.
Clarke was most recently with Leyton Orient before he was released at the end of last season and has now subsequently signed for Phil Parkinson’s side on a one-year deal.
The 31-year-old began his career at youth level with Huddersfield before signing a professional contract with the club in 2001.
He went on to make 265 appearances for The Terriers in a 11 year spell, with the final two seasons being spent on loan at Colchester, Oldham and Bury where he sturggled to nail down a regular spot, however upon expiry of his deal with Huddersfield, he signed for Leyton Orient in the summer of 2012 and has since made 113 appearances before the expiry of his current deal.
Bradford have made several good additions ahead of the new campaign as they look to improve on last season’s performance.
Clarke has over a decade of Football League experience which will be a welcome addition to Phil Parkinson’s squad and it will also provide them with some more competition at the heart of the defence.
