Having made it clear Stuart McCall isn’t going anywhere, the boss will look to secure the signings he wants to bring to Bradford as McCall bids to mastermind another promotion push next season.

A free agent after exercising his right to leave Leyton Orient, Gavin Massey is in a three-way battle with League One rivals Wigan and Portsmouth as Bradford look to sign the ex-Colchester forward on a free transfer.

Massey took up the option of leaving Brisbane Road following Leyton Orient’s relegation from the Football League as he didn’t want to play in the National League for Orient, he wasn’t alone in making such a decision.

According to the East London and West Essex Guardian, Portsmouth had first shown an interest in Massey, 24, when Paul Cook was in charge at Fratton Park. He’s since left to become boss at Wigan and has retained his interest, as have Pompey.

McCall is keen to add to the attacking options and Massey, who scored eight goals last season, could provide a good addition to the squad if he can convince him Valley Parade is the place to take his career forward – where the Bradford boss will continue himself as City’s Official Website statement released this week confirmed.
