Aaron McLean Departs Valley Parade

City Release McLean

Bradford City have today confirmed that Aaron Mclean has left the club by mutual consent, this brings an end to an unhappy and expensive chapter for both player and club.

The striker’s contract, thought to be the highest at the club, has been cancelled by mutual consent with a year still to run, no contract details have been revealed but it’s thought that City have made a significant saving compared to what they would have had to pay for the length of the deal.

Aaron McLean, joined the club from Hull City in January 2014 and scored six goals in thirty-three league games, however he spent most of last season on loan at Peterborough United.  McLean initially went to United as a player, but later he helped the management team as part of the coaching staff when Dave Robertson succeeded Darren Ferguson.

With Dave Robertson now in the job on a full-time basis at Peterborough, it would be no surprise to see the striker return to London Road on a similar type of dual role.  Mclean remains a hugely popular figure with Posh after his prolific spell there earlier in his career.

Joint-chairman Julian Rhodes had recently talked about installing an extra fitness programme through the summer to get McLean in shape for a possible second stint at Valley Parade.  But it was always hard to see him featuring again for Phil Parkinson.

Speaking on Twitter Aaron McLean said, “I would just like to thank all those who supported me in my time at Bradford City and I wish the lads all the very best for the upcoming season.”
