Defender Carl McHugh has left City for League Two side Plymouth Argyle.

He penned a two-year deal with the Pilgrims today and will officially link up with them at the start of next month once his contract with the Bantams has expired.

McHugh, who was a key figure in City's record-breaking run to the Capital One Cup final in 2012-13, made 44 appearances in two seasons at Valley Parade.

His most memorable moment was scoring the third goal for the Bantams in their 3-1 home semi-final first-leg victory over Aston Villa.

McHugh also played his part in City's first season in League One following promotion last year, scoring the winner against Port Vale which was crucial in helping them stay away from the relegation zone.

He becomes the fourth member of the famous 'history-makers' squad from the memorable 2012/2013 season to leave the club this summer after Gary Jones, Garry Thompson and Nathan Doyle also departed during the off-season.

During his time at City, McHugh also earned his first under-21 caps for the Republic of Ireland and was awarded the Football League Young Player of Month for January 2013.
