Bradford City manager Stuart McCall has completed his first signing of the season, by bringing back talented midfielder Nicky Law on a free transfer. Law will officially become a Bradford City player on Friday 1st July when his contract with Glasgow Rangers expires.
Law has penned a two-year contract at Valley Parade after finalising his move back to the Bantams this Wednesday. The deal is subject to international clearance due to Law’s previous time in Scotland.
This will be the third time Nicky Law has signed for City and will feature in the club’s claret and amber colours, his two previous loan spells in 2007 and 2008 were both under manager Stuart McCall.
Law, who is comfortable playing wide or a more central role has also played for McCall in Scotland at both Motherwell and Glasgow Rangers. He was part of the squad at Ibrox last season that helped Rangers back into the Scottish Premier League. He has also played in the UEFA Champions League and Europa League competitions for Motherwell.
After making his original Bantams debut in 2007, Nicky Law is probably best remembered for his part in the club’s 2008/09 campaign. The busy midfielder, played a sizeable role in the Bantams’ season, featuring in 35 games from October onwards as City narrowly missed out on the League 2 Play-Offs.
Speaking about his return to Valley Parade Nicky Law said, “I am delighted to be coming back to Bradford City and it’s a bonus that it will be with Stuart again. I enjoyed both loan spells here before, particularly the second one.
The club has improved a lot since I last came here and looks to be on the up. Speaking to the manager and listening to his targets for the season, it seems exciting times and a fantastic club to return to.”
