McMahon, 31, looked set to leave Bradford this summer after his contract expired at the end of last season. This led to interest from Blackburn Rovers along with Championship sides Bolton Wanderers and Preston North End. However, it now looks as though McMahon will be remaining a Bradford City player for the upcoming season.
The defender began his career with Middlesbrough, where he played under current Blackburn boss Tony Mowbray, and went on to make 119 league appearances for the club. The right-back then moved to Sheffield United in 2012 after being released.
McMahon signed for Blackpool in 2014 and then for Bradford City after just over a year at the club. The defender played 31 times for the Bantams last season as they reached the League One Play-Off Final, eventually losing out to Millwall.
Being able to play at right-back and on the right-hand side of midfielder, McMahon is quite a versatile player. He also has a goal in him, scoring six times and getting five assists in League One last season.
With his links to Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray, many expected McMahon to link up with the former Middlesbrough manager once again at Blackburn this season. However, he now looks set to stay on at Bradford and try to help the club towards promotion once again this season.
Blackburn have made four new signings so far this summer: Mowbray has signed midfielders Peter Whittingham, Richie Smallwood, Bradley Dack and Ben Gladwin as he looks to lead Blackburn back to the Championship at the first time of asking.
