League Two side Bradford City sign second Huddersfield Town player after bringing in Romoney Crichlow from Championship club

BRADFORD CITY have landed their second loan signing from West Yorkshire neighbours Huddersfield Town in the shape of Romoney Crichlow - following on from their earlier capture of young striker Kian Harratt.

Crichlow, who spent loan spells last term at Swindon Town and Plymouth Argyle, has joined on a season-long loan like Harratt.

He becomes the Bantams' tenth addition of a hectic close season.

He said: “I am excited to be here. There have been a few negotiations over the summer, so I am just glad to have it sorted and am looking forward to getting started.

“When you look at the manager here and Bradford City as a club, it was always an attractive proposition.

"I have been at Huddersfield for a number of years now, so have quite a few team-mates who have played here and all said positive things about the club and their time here.

"I am a front-footed defender but will die for a clean sheet and try to chip in with a few goals.

"I am here to win games and cannot wait to get started.”

Bantams boss Mark Hughes added: "We are really pleased to have brought Romoney in on loan for the season, and again thank our friends at Huddersfield Town for their hard work and co-operation in making the deal happen.

"At a young age, Romoney has maturity beyond his years in his play. He is an accomplished footballer in possession as well as carrying important defensive qualities.

"He showed at Swindon Town last season how he can perform at this level, and his impressive spell there was rewarded with a loan move to a side in the division above for the second half of the campaign.

"Romoney fits in well with the style of play we are trying to implement here, and has been a target of ours since the very start of the summer.

"He is another player we are excited to be welcoming to the club, and we look forward to having him in pre-season training with us when we return later this week.”
