STUART MCCALL is closing in on a possible return as Bradford City manager, The Yorkshire Post understands.
The 52-year-old has moved to the top of the Bantams’ wanted list following last week’s shock departure of Phil Parkinson.
New owners Edin Rahic and Stefan Rupp have spent the past week searching for a replacement and are understood to have locked on to McCall, who had three years as City manager before leaving Valley Parade in 2010.
Since then, McCall has enjoyed success at Motherwell and had a spell in charge of Glasgow Rangers. He is also Gordon Strachan’s assistant with the Scottish national team.
