Bradford City sign Matthew Kilgallon

Bradford City have signed defender Matthew Kilgallon on a one-year-deal.

The 32-year-old joins the Bantams on a free transfer after passing his medical to become their eighth signing of the summer.

The former Leeds and Sheffield United defender's deal with the club also includes the option of a further year.

Kilgallon, who took part in training with his new team-mates for the first time this Monday, joins City after leaving previous club Blackburn Rovers at the end of last season.

While at Sheffield United, Kilgallon first linked up with City boss Stuart McCall, who was the Blades' assistant manager at the time.

We're delighted to have brought in someone of Matt's pedigree and experience.
