League One side Bradford City have confirmed a season long loan deal for Bury player Adam Thompson.
The 24-year old defender joined Bury this summer from Southend. He has played in three games but he likely did not match the expectations of manager Lee Clark so he was shipped off.
The Northern Ireland player is with the national team for the international break. He would join Stuart McCall’s side after international duty. The former Watford centre half is expected to add to the City ranks this campaign. McCall said he was happy to have the player on board as he plays a role they clearly wanted to strengthen.
As Bury lose the new addition, they have added another in MihaiDobre from Bournemouth. The 19-year old winger is expected to feature for Bury until January. He would miss the clash with Scunthorpe this weekend as he is with Romania U-21 for international games.
The youngster known as Alex has been with the development side of the Premier League side. He joined from Viitorul Constanta but he is yet to make a senior debut. He is expected to get regular action at Bury so he can further develop.
Meanwhile Clark has said that the team would add more players before the window closes. He said he tried doing the deals early so he could focus on the players available but that it hasn’t worked out that way. He and the rest of the team are actively seeking prospective placements for the current squad which is undergoing a trim.
“The majority of the work we are doing is on players going out. The squad numbers have crept up because of the injuries we have had so I need to sort that out. But obviously, there are areas we still need to strengthen,” he said.
Clark added that most of the deals would likely be late ones, just before the window closes.
