Bradford City boss Stuart McCall will be aiming high once again as he attempts to guide the Bantams to promotion to where they believe they belong: in the Championship.
The League One outfit have narrowly missed out on a place in the second-tier in recent seasons, despite many believing they have the status of a club in a higher division, so the manager will be looking to put that right.
If McCall is searching for defensive recruits, then he would be glancing in the right direction by acquiring Cameron Humphreys-Grant on a loan deal from Premier League giants Manchester City.
Aged just 18-years-old, the centre-back has aspirations of becoming a prominent figure in the first-team at the Etihad but, in my opinion, both parties – himself and Bradford City – would enjoy his services at Valley Parade.
Humphreys-Grant failed to taste senior football last term but did get a feel for it the previous year having made two appearances for Manchester City in their FA Cup campaign.
However, the young defender was a regular in the club’s reserve squad and played a consistent part in City’s UEFA Youth League season – racking up 28 matches in both competitions for the 2016/17 year.
If the Bantams want to compete in the league then this simply has to be one of the additions to the squad during the summer transfer window and as soon as possible, because a rival could quickly snap him up if they fail to.
