Bradford City are chasing former left-back Greg Leigh from Bury but the clubs are yet to agree a fee, according to journalist Alan Nixon.

Managerless Bradford City are looking to resign left-back Greg Leigh from League Two side Bury. Leigh’s last spell at the club saw him make just nine appearances for the Bantams.

Greg was offered a new deal at the end of the 2015-16 season but then ex-Shakers manager David Flitcroft pounced and offered a deal which was quickly accepted and signed allowing him to move to Gigg Lane.

If Greg Leigh rejoins the Bantams he will become the 3rd signing of the summer. Manchester United defender Joe Riley has signed for the League One side on a two-year deal.

Also Bradford City have signed midfielder Josh Wright on a free transfer.

The 28-year-old has agreed a two-year deal and will move to Valley Parade on 1 July when his contract at League One rivals Southend United expires.

23-year-old Greg Leigh was snapped up by the Manchester City academy system in 2004 after being spotted playing for Manchester amateur side Sale United.  Progress with City eventually saw him join Crewe Alexandra on a three-month loan period during the 2014-15 season.

His impact for the Railwaymen was such that his loan deal was extended to a full season loan and he went onto make 42 appearances at Gresty Road.

However, at the end of that season, he returned to the Etihad Stadium, only to find himself released and without a club. Despite an offer from Crewe Alexandra, Greg went to Bradford City, initially on a trial basis, but impressed enough to be offered a 12-month deal.
