Bradford City set sights on Championship transfer swoop

Bradford City are keen on bringing Plymouth Argyle winger Tyreik Wright back to the club, reporter Alan Nixon has said on his Patreon.

Bradford City have an important summer transfer window ahead of them as they look to become strong candidates for promotion from League Two once more.

It will be Graham Alexander’s first summer window in charge at Valley Parade, giving him a real chance to shape the squad to his liking ahead of the 2024/25 campaign.

There were promising signs from the Bantams at times and they put some impressive runs together to move up the League Two table. With some fresh faces and more consistency, they should be in the conversation at the right end of the division next season.

Now, it has been said they’re keen on reuniting with a familiar face again this summer.

Reporter Alan Nixon states on his Patreon that Bradford City are keen to bring winger Tyreik Wright back to the club once again, on either a permanent or temporary basis.

Amid a struggle for game time with Championship side Plymouth Argyle, 22-year-old Wright returned for a second loan in January. He scored twice in 14 league games, taking his tally for the club to six goals and two assists in 32 outings.

Wright has other interest but is aware he would get minutes with the Bantams, the report adds.

Who is this?

Best for Wright?

With Plymouth Argyle remaining in the Championship, it seems unlikely that he gets regular minutes there.

Of course, the change in management with Wayne Rooney at the reins may well give him an opportunity to catch the eye in pre-season. The new boss will likely want to assess all those in his ranks, Wright included.

If the door is indeed open for him to move on from Home Park though, Bradford City could be a likely destination.

It’s a club he’s become more than familiar with over two loans and with good game time on offer from Alexander, it could be a great place for him to kick on again after a couple of stop-start campaigns.

What will be interesting to see is if anyone else comes in for him, with other interest in Wright there.

Loan or permanent

The length of Wright’s Plymouth Argyle contract is not publicly disclosed and that could have an impact on whether he heads out temporarily again or if he is allowed to move on for good.

The latter could be ideal for the Irishman, giving him a chance to settle at a permanent home and kick on elsewhere. It seems likely too, given his place in the Pilgrims’ pecking order.

If he has more than a year on his contract though, Argyle could yet send him out on loan just to leave the door open to a stay further down the line.

Bradford City will be sure to keep a keen eye on developments. Regardless of the deal available, it looks as though the Bantams will be looking to bring Wright back again this summer.
