MANAGERLESS Bradford City have signed Bayern Munich reserve defender Thomas Isherwood on a two-year deal.

The arrival of the 20-year-old former Sweden Under-19 international, who had a trial with Rangers at the end of last season, is City’s third signing of the close season following the previous captures of full-back Joe Riley and midfielder Josh Wright.

Barnsley academy manager Paul Harsley has joined Premier League champions Manchester City as their new elite development squad manager.

The former Scunthorpe United, Macclesfield Town and Port Vale midfielder, 40, who joined the Reds as senior professional development coach in October 2016, took charge of the first team in a caretaker role following the department of Paul Heckingbottom to Leeds United in February.

Harsley was in the dug-out for the home derby draw with Sheffield Wednesday on February 10 before reverting to his former role following the arrival of Jose Morais.

Meanwhile, former Wolves keeper and Sky Sports pundit Matt Murray has left the club.

Murray joined the club’s academy staff last August and also worked alongside Harsley in his brief stint in temporary charge.

Ex-Leeds and Barnsley head of sports science Nathan Winder has been appointed as the new fitness coach at Ipswich Town.

Harrogate Town striker Jake Wright has joined York City on a two-year deal – for his second spell at the club.

Rotherham United midfielder Ben Wiles, 19, has penned a new one-year extension with the club.

Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann says he has decided on his future, but the Frenchman has refused to say whether he will leave the club this summer.

Ongoing speculation is linking him with a move to Spanish champions Barcelona.
