Freshening up squad will give everyone a lift, says Bantams boss after double swoop

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: STRIKE ONE: Leeds hitman Ross McCormack looks on as Chris Atkinson scores his first goal for Huddersfield in a 4-2 home defeat against their derby foes on December 1, 2012 STRIKE ONE: Leeds hitman Ross McCormack looks on as Chris Atkinson scores his first goal for Huddersfield in a 4-2 home defeat against their derby foes on December 1, 2012

Phil Parkinson today surveyed his mid-season City shake-up and admitted: We needed that.

Doncaster right winger Kyle Bennett and Huddersfield midfielder Chris Atkinson yesterday followed Middlesbrough’s Adam Reach to Valley Parade.

Jason Kennedy, who has found it difficult to adapt since his summer switch from Rochdale, also returned to Spotland on a busy day of transfer-window movement.

With Aaron Mclean braced for his home debut on Tuesday after replacing Nahki Wells, it is suddenly becoming some transformation for a squad that has remained almost untouched since winning promotion.

But Parkinson felt it was required after a barren run of only one win from the last 17 games which has seen City dip below mid-table.

He said: “We’ve had a bit of a change-round. Bringing in a couple of fresh faces alters the dynamic of the place a little bit and that can give everyone a lift.

“I still want to get a left back in if we can. I haven’t been able to get the one I want for various reasons but hopefully it will happen next week.”

Once tipped as a potential superstar coming up through the academy ranks at Wolves, Bennett cut his teeth with Bury before joining Doncaster in July 2011.

But the 23-year-old has been limited to just four substitute appearances this season since Paul Dickov came in and spent a month in League One on loan at Crawley.

Bennett, on loan until May, will push Garry Thompson for the starting role on City’s right.

Despite playing regularly, Thompson has not been able to rediscover his impressive form from the second half of last season. But the lack of competition for his place has been a concern.

The fact that Parkinson has brought in two wingers this week would suggest that Mark Yeates has failed to convince his manager that he is worth a full-time recall.

Raffaele De Vita is still side-lined after suffering a setback with his thigh injury.

Aston Villa teenager Jordan Graham joined a fortnight ago on a month’s youth loan but is yet to appear, with Parkinson stressing he was brought in as an “impact” option rather than a potential starter.

The City boss added: “Jordan came in on the day we sold Nahki at a time when we were down to only 14 or 15 fit players. We needed an impact player with an attacking threat on the bench.

“Unfortunately, he hasn’t got on because Reidy (Kyel Reid) has got injuries in both games and we’ve had to change things.

“But Jordan’s only a young kid and you’ve got to be careful with the expectations on him.

“Kyle has obviously got a lot more experience and that’s why we’ve got him in.

“He’s played about 70 games in his time at Doncaster and he’s been on loan this season with Crawley. He’s quick and will offer good competition.”

Central midfielder Atkinson, 21, is also with City until the end of the season after playing 28 games on loan for Tranmere, scoring three. He scored five times in 16 games during a stint with Chesterfield last term.

Parkinson said: “We’ve got a lot of games coming up and with Jason going, I felt it was important to get another midfield player in.

“Chris has played a lot of first-team football this year. He’s a good young player with good energy.

“His contract’s coming up in the summer. He’s someone to come in now and compete for a place but also we can have one eye on the future.”

That is a good fillip for the Squad. I still feel more players need to be moved in and out. To balance the Players Wage Bill.
*
There is about a week left to move more players out. Parky did right to give the promotion Squad, the opportunity to continue their form in L1.
*
I still feel another TWO players are needed. Before the window closes.

Would be good to see a pacey right winger nudge Thommo out of the way and give the oppostion something to worry about! I can see us easy to defend against down that side but maybe a little more solid in the defending part! However it's chances we need to carve out at the moment so very good news!

On the face of it these players look three excellent acquisitions, as PP says the squad needed fresh blood. Looking forward to seeing how they fare against Preston North End. Should be a great game with a fantastic atmosphere, can see a 2-1 win to the Bantams!!! McLean scores both!!!!!

Why "must" we. Evidence please or keep your foolish assumptions to yourself. Wells has gone, Folan has gone, Reid could well be an insurance claim, Connell and Oliver free to leave, Kennedy gone to Rochdale...please think before posting.

We will need to perform well to win. An early goal will help as always.

Let's hope the new recruits gel well and pronto!!

Yes Peter its known as asset protection, clubs insure players against the loss of transfer fees in case of serious injury, I believe Nahki was well covered in this respect, but insurance can also be taken out to pay a players salary in the event of a lengthy injury lay off. Whether City had that for Kyel Reid who knows but somebody as injury prone as him may have been well covered.. at a price. I hope Kyel has his own insurance to fall back on to protect himself against this sort of career threatening injury and loss of income also.

I thought as a self confessed ex pro footballer you would be fully aware of this Peter, or have you been telling porkys??

McLean's wage alone will be double the exited Wells, Folan and Kennedy. Connell and Oliver are still on the payroll. Which makes tyker2's comment perfectly valid.

Its really simple. Player gets injured. ..wages still have to be paid...club insure against this possibility...insura
nce pays wage whilst player is injured. I dont have to provide evidence as i used the word "could" to indicate it was possible and not a known fact. Please stop showing your ignorance.

You have no idea what any of them earn so like Tyker you are guessing and stating it as reality/fact. This makes both of your comments invalid. We dont know one way or the other, it is all guesswork. I suspect that Mclean is not earning double what Wells, Folan and Kennedy are earning anyway. Not very plausible.

Try and work it out yourself. McLean came from a Premier League club. Wells, however, was widely reported as being on £65,000 per annum Folan was out of work and on a short term contract and Kennedy came from an unfashionable League 2 club.

You started this with a " clever dick" comment to a perfectly valid post and, unfortunately you didn't think it through in your haste to reply. A lesson to be learned there.

So your "not guessing" is from what you have read on the internet. Absolutely laughable. I repeat, what "are" the wages of the four you mention...not what do you "think" they are.

If you can answer that then please state; as fact, what Mclean is now earning at City.

Now, to the issue that started this; have City breached the 60% cap as Tyker stated as fact and thereby implied that PP and the Directors have been telling Lies?

Folan has been gone quite a while now though and certainly before Lawn's claim we were close to the wages ceiling. Yes, Connell & Oliver are free to go, but they haven't yet so we are still picking up their salaries. Reid "may be an insurance claim"? Is that not the same as assuming?

The reality is, we were told by various members of the board that we were near the ceiling for wages. Since then, we allegedly made Hanson our highest paid player (with wages increase immediately). We have lost Wells but he wasn't on big wages, hence why we tried to negotiate a new deal before he left. Instead, we brought in Mclean who is now the highest paid player at the club. It is also rumoured that in Davies' own contract, whenever a player becomes highest earner, his salary automatically increases to the same.

We have let Kennedy leave, but have brought in 3 players from the Championship. Won't they likely be on decent money?

Even if we are making some assumptions, it is clear to see that our salary expense had just increased significantly since mid to late December. And yet we still hope to bring in a new left-back before the weekend.

That all said, we received a fee from Wells' sale so this will have been added to the coffers, even if we can only spend 60% on wages.

Why don't you just take a chill pill KMc! Wait for Tyker to come and explain himself. For all you know, he may have simply omitted the'?' at the end of his post!!

Instead of picking fights with other posters with no way of settling it (because individual salaries don't usually get released), why didn't you just point out the additional income received this month from Wells' sale? You didn't have to be so 4rsey!!

We can only go by the snippets leaked from the club. We were told that Mclean has signed a deal to make him the highest paid. When James signed his contract, we were told the same then too.
