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. Read More
Wolves have completed the signing of Bury’s goal keeper Jack Ruddy, Sky Sports reports.
The 18-year old signed a two year deal at Mollineux with an option of an extra year. He would not be able to train with the senior team, based on the report. He would have to start his development with the Under 23 side. The Under 19 Scotland international joined Bury back in 2014 from Spanish club Real Murcia. Before he left, he could only pull in one appearance for the Shakers.
“I’m over the moon to be here and to have joined such a big club with really big ambitions. I have really enjoyed my time at Bury and want to thank everyone there for what they have done for me, but the interest from Wolves was always going to be very exciting,” the excited young lad said.
Ruddy is obviously a big fan of the side as he mentioned that Wolves are a side with history of goalkeepers like Matt Murray, Wayne Hennessey and Carl Ikeme. He seemed happy to get a path to develop as others despite being a young goalkeeper. He is obviously happy that the manager of the club was also a goalkeeper.
David Flitcroft has set his eyes in signing a few performers in this January transfer window but in order to add these players into his team, the 41 year old English manager might have to offload some players of his own in order to create enough space and avoid having an overblown squad with too many players which will unnecessarily increase the wage bill of the team.
Even if Flitcroft does indeed decide to release some of his players and generate some cash from those sales, the manager is well aware that he has his limits when it comes to signing new players to his team as Bury FC does not have the same kind of financial freedom as other clubs when it comes to luring in top players to his team but nonetheless, he will do everything in his power to sign the best players that he can but more importantly is to strengthen the areas of his team which have appeared to be the most vulnerable.
‘’With the injuries we`ve had over the past four or five weeks it`s important that we try and bring some potential signings to fruition. However, it`s not easy because a January transfer window is never easy. You`re usually trying to wrestle with clubs, wrestle with players and different deals’’ Read More
