In news just released by Bradford City, the club have released striker Paul Taylor from his playing contract with the club.

The Liverpool-born forward started his youth career at Everton – as well as having spells at Liverpool and Manchester City as a youth player. He has also played for the likes of Charleroi and Anderlecht in Belgium, as well as Ipswich and Peterborough domestically.

Taylor joined the Bantams on a free at the start of last summer’s transfer window from Peterborough, who he joined the year before after a 12-month career break. He’s featured in 27 League One games for City this season, scoring six times.

In Bradford City’s official statement, the club say that Taylor has left “by mutual consent” and for “non-football related reasons.” The Bantams go on to stress that no further news will be coming from them regarding the reasons of his leaving the club and ask that “his privacy is respected.”

Bradford’s Head of Recruitment Greg Abbott said of the striker’s departure, “Paul the footballer is such a talented individual, and it is just very unfortunate for himself and the club that things have worked out this way. He is a great lad, and the whole group are very disappointed for him, but you are not immune from personal issues just because you are a footballer. They can affect everyone.”

Bradford City fans on Twitter have been quick to comment on the leaving of Taylor, a popular player at Valley Parade.
