Dolan Agrees Bantams Loan

Winger Matthew Dolan agrees deal until end of the season at Bradford City.

Bradford City have reached an agreement with Middlesbrough to take midfielder Matthew Dolan on loan until the end of the season.

The news comes after Phil Parkinson tried to secure Dolan on a permanent move last Friday only to be beaten by the 11:00pm January transfer window deadline.

Barring any unforeseen changes to the agreement between City and Middlesbrough, the paperwork for Dolan's loan deal will be registered with The F.A and the Football League when the emergency loan transfer window re-opens this Saturday.

Subject to receiving the relevant clearances from The F.A and the League once the paperwork has been lodged, Dolan will go into Parkinson's match-day squad for this Saturday's home fixture with Crewe Alexandra.

Speaking about the deal, Parkinson said: "We've been making changes to the squad recently and Matty Dolan will be another one of those when he comes in.

"I believe he will be a good edition for us, especially with Ricky [Ravenhill] going.

"Matty will add some quality into the midfield area. He has a good mentality as well. He is eager to learn and eager do really well here at Bradford City."
