According to a report from TEAMtalk, Peterborough United’s transfer-listed midfielder Callum Cooke is set to seal a move away, with a loan switch to League Two side Bradford City said to be on the brink of completion.

Peterborough United placed midfielder Callum Cooke on the transfer list upon the end of last season, but until now, he has been unable to seal a move away. Now, that could be set to change, with a report from TEAMtalk claiming that the former Middlesbrough man will now join Bradford City on loan for the 2019/20 League One season.

A number of clubs have been said to be keen on bringing in Cooke this summer, but it looks set that it is the Bantams who will win the race for his signature. A medical for the 22-year-old is said to be taking place today (Thursday), with confirmation of the deal seemingly not to far behind.

In his only season with Peterborough, Cooke played in 20 games across all competitions, scoring once and providing one assist. Now, he looks set to link up with Gary Bowyer, who he played under during his time on loan at Blackpool.

Cooke was one of the many players to join Peterborough United last summer in Steve Evans’ refurbishment of the Posh squad. However, his sacking spelt the end of the road for some players at the club. Cooke, Mark O’Hara, Aaron Chapman and Isaac Buckley-Ricketts – all Evans signings – were placed on the transfer list, and in the past few weeks, Jason Naismith and Alex Woodyard – both Evans signings – have also been made available for transfer.

Now, with a move seemingly on the brink of completion, it awaits to be seen if the deal is confirmed in time for Cooke to be in contention for this weekend’s game against Forest Green.
