Shay McCartan has joined Sky Bet League Two Lincoln City on a season-long loan deal.
The 24-year-old forward, who can be recalled, made 29 appearances for the Bantams last season - scoring four goals.
McCartan joined City last June and has today departed the Northern Commercials Stadium.
Bantams head coach Michael Collins said: "I spoke with Shay and explained how we couldn't guarantee him regular football.
"I believe there is a quality player in Shay and our thinking is around the fact the door isn't closed for him.
"He is still a Bradford City player and we want him to get out there and play some football.
"Shay needs to get back to enjoying his football and we will asses the situation from there.
"His attitude is first class and Lincoln have got a good player in Shay.
"This has been very amicable. He understands the reasoning behind it and has remained very professional right up to being allowed out on loan."
