Bantams Sign Defender Knight-Percival
Bradford City have today confirmed the signing of centre half Nathaniel Knight-Percival on a free transfer. The Enfield born defender completed a medical at Apperley Bridge training ground this morning before put pen to paper on a two-year deal.
Knight-Percival becomes Stuart McCall’s second signing of the summer after impressing in Sky Bet League One last season with Shrewsbury Town. The left-sided centre back made 41 appearances for Shrewsbury, netting an impressive five times.
Knight-Percival joined Shrewsbury in 2014 from Peterborough United, during his spell at Peterborough, Knight-Percival helped the Posh to win the EFL Trophy with a 3-1 win over Chesterfield at Wembley Stadium in 2014.
Knight-Percival’s first season with Peterborough was actually in the Championship, with the defender playing 32 times in the 2012/2013 season following his move from non-league Wrexham.
After signing for Bradford City Nathaniel Knight-Percival said, “Having a look around the club and speaking with the gaffer, this move just felt right for me. Hearing the plans for next season it seemed like a really good challenge for me to take up.
Everyone knows this is such a big club and you could see from the outside the slow and steady progression Bradford has made over the years. The club is looking to achieve something great and it is exciting to now be a part of it.”
