Bradford City working on loan deal for Portsmouth goalkeeper Luke McGee

Bradford City are working on a loan deal for Portsmouth goalkeeper Luke McGee, according to The Sun journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter (tweet below).

Bradford are in the hunt for a new goalkeeper in this transfer window and identified the Pompey stopper as a target.

Bradford boss Gary Bowyer.

McGee, who is 24 years old, has been made available by Kenny Jackett having fallen down the pecking order with the League One side.

He has been used a back-up ‘keeper over the past season-and-a-half and is set to leave this month for more first team opportunities.

McGee started his career at Tottenham Hotspur and rose up through the youth ranks of the North London outfit. He never made a senior appearance for Spurs but did play for their youth sides.

He got his first taste of first-team football out on loan in the third tier at Peterborough United for the 2016/17 season. He made 45 appearances for the Posh in all competitions.

The stopper then left Spurs on a permanent deal to join Pompey in July 2017 and was their first choice ‘keeper in his first season at the club. However, he lost his place behind Craig MacGillivray in the last campaign and played just five times in cup competitions.

This season has been no better in terms of game time for McGee and he could now be dropping down a division to join Bradford on loan. The Yorkshire side are currently 6th in League Two under Gary Bowyer.
