Bradford City are delighted to announce the loan signing of midfielder Callum Cooke.

Arriving from Sky Bet League One Peterborough United, 22-year-old Cooke has put pen to paper on a season-long loan agreement with the Bantams.

The former Crewe and Blackpool player, who has represented England at junior level, has been reunited with City manager Gary Bowyer and cannot wait to get started.

Cooke said: “It all happened pretty quickly - in terms of the last 24 hours - and I am really looking forward to what lies ahead.

“I told my agent I wanted to come to this club. Obviously, with Gary Bowyer being here, that helps.

“I have played at Bradford before and have been on the losing end on both occasions. Now I will be in the home dressing room and I cannot wait.

“Hopefully, we kick on and keep picking up points. To play in front of 14-15,000 fans will be fantastic.

“When I came into Bradford, this morning, I passed the stadium and got a real buzz.

“I am an attack-minded midfielder, so am hoping to bring goals and creativity to the middle of the park.

"This is a fresh start for me and, hopefully, I will be able to give the supporters something to get off their seats for.”

Bantams boss Gary Bowyer, who managed Cooke during his time at Blackpool, added: “Callum is a great character and someone I have coached before.

“He will fit in very well with our group and we are looking forward to working with him.

“Callum has fantastic technical ability and can play in a variety of positions.

“He had a few other options but always wanted to come and play here, so we are delighted to have the deal over the line.”

Cooke will wear the No.26 shirt and could be in line to make his debut on Saturday when City host Forest Green Rovers in Sky Bet League Two. His signing is subject to the relevant EFL and FA clearances.
