Bradford City have bolstered their defensive ranks after completing the signing of highly-rated youngster Tyler French.
The 20-year-old arrives from AFC Sudbury following a successful trial period, penning a two-year deal with the club. He attracted interest from Charlton, Ipswich and Barnsley but French is delighted to be joining the Bantams.
He said: “I am over the moon to be joining the club. It is all quite surreal. As soon as Bradford got in touch and I was given the opportunity, it was a no-brainer.
“Gary (Bowyer) had nothing but positive words for me and was keen to get me in straight away. I could not think of anywhere better to be than Bradford.
“Having home crowds of 15,000-plus is fantastic and I cannot wait to get in front of the fans and show them what I am all about. Expect big things from me because I will give my absolute all for the shirt – and the badge.”
