No news is good news for Bradford City
Phil Parkinson was happy to keep the Valley Parade exit firmly shut as transfer deadline day passed off quietly at City.
Despite all the hype surrounding Nahki Wells, there were no late bids as Parkinson’s squad remained intact.
Like the rest of the Football League, City can now target the emergency loan market which reopens next week.
Parkinson said: “Our priority was to keep everything we’ve got first and foremost.
“Once the Premier League teams have named their 25-man squad, it opens up a surplus of players which becomes available to us and the Championship clubs.
“But until that happens, players who feel they are going to be involved in the Premier League want to stay around. That’s what we’re waiting for now.
“Maybe we don’t get a Premier League player but they might go to the Championship, which then opens up someone else. It’s a knock-on effect.
“But there’s no mad rush at the moment. We’re doing okay.”
