Defender Gary MacKenzie arrives from Blackpool.

Bradford City have strengthened their defensive options for the remainder of the 2014/2015 campaign by snapping up Blackpool defender Gary MacKenzie on loan.

MacKenzie, 29, joined City on Deadline Day on a loan deal.

The contract, which is subject to Football Association and Football League clearance, will see MacKenzie in City's squad for this Saturday's trip to Port Vale.

The Scotsman becomes the second Blackpool player to join the Bantams on loan this season following the arrival of forward Francois Zoko.

The Lanark-born centre half started his career at Glasgow Rangers back in 2004. MacKenzie also spent four seasons with Dundee and three at MK Dons.
