Bradford City have grounds to retain Taylor

BRADFORD City's joint-chairman Mark Lawn has revealed that the club have identified a location for their new training ground.

The Bantams will quit their Apperley Bridge site for a new improved venue which the club hope will entice manager Peter Taylor into commiting his long-term future to the club.

"This place has got four or five quality pitches which are not being used in the day, plus a brand new third-generation if the weather is bad," said Lawn.

"Peter wants somewhere that the lads can turn up, get changed and showered there."

Taylor has hinted a new contract with City is dependant on the pieces being in place for him to do a proper job with the League Two side.

And Lawn said: "Hopefully we've sorted his wages and his personal terms and we're nearly there with the budget for players.

"But it's also down to the fans. We're launching season tickets next week and if we sell 5,000, I can give him the budget he wants."
