A patient approach is something Phil Parkinson has previously said Bradford need to take with our attempts to bring in new players. He’s admitted Swindon’s Andy Williams was a target before joining Doncaster though.

Parkinson’s admitted to the Telegraph & Argus that the 22-goal striker was someone that he wanted, but our League 1 rivals snapped him up instead.

Williams was one of a handful he’s looking at though with him still hopeful we’ll bring in ‘a couple’ next week.

‘He was one of four or five strikers we were looking at – but it’s an ongoing process.

‘Hopefully by early next week, we might have made progress and got a couple of new faces in for the start of pre-season training.’

The main priority, with Andrew Davies and Jon Stead both out of contract now, is that we strengthen so we can progress with Parkinson not looking for us to ship players out to make us weaker.

James Hanson continues to be linked with Millwall but a deal hasn’t been agreed and he doesn’t want this to be the case either.

‘I want to keep our best players.

‘I’m looking to build a squad, not weaken it, in order to continue the improvement and progression of this football club.’

We’ll not progress if the likes of Hanson go, he’ll not be easily replaced!
