Alan Sheehan joins Bradford City on two-year deal

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Alan Sheehan has joined City on a two-year deal Alan Sheehan has joined City on a two-year deal

Alan Sheehan today spoke of his delight after joining City on a two-year deal following his departure from Notts County.

The 27-year-old, who captained the Magpies last season, was out of contract and his arrival at Valley Parade looks to have signalled the end of James Meredith's City career.

Meredith’s retained offer from the Bantams, on what were believed to be on improved terms, expired on June 16 and boss Phil Parkinson has now snapped up Sheehan.

The former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international began his career at Leicester before enjoying spells with Mansfield, Leeds, Crewe, Oldham and Swindon and then joining Notts County in 2011.

Sheehan said: "When I spoke to the manager, he told me the plans he had for the club. He didn't really need to sell the place to be honest though, everyone knows what a big club Bradford are.

"I'm delighted to be part of the manager's plans here. I can't wait to get started now with pre-season and to meet all the boys."

Notts County tried to re-sign Sheehan and Gary Liddle but both men opted to join the Bantams, where their contracts begin on July 1.

If Meredith's contract offer has expired, does that mean that Mclaughlan's has as well? If so, and that's the end for him, we need a couple of keepers unless we are going to use a junior as backup. Does anybody know if we have a decent junior keeper ready for 1st team bench duty?

I am not sure if that is a rhetorical question.

Meredith's contract terminates this month, whilst McLaughlin's expires in July.

For this reason, he may be using the 'extra-time' to think things over during his holiday. (On that subject, I hope to goodness that he has not gone to Pontins at Southport. It got a dreadful review on Watchdog).

A general question really. They have the same employer and play in the same team so I assumed they would have contracts of the same duration. They've both been offered new deals so, putting two and two together, I was thinking that perhaps the expiry date on both offers had expired.

I'm only guessing, but don't think I'll be far wrong, that McLean, Davies, Darby, Hanson and Yeates will account for almost 50% of the forthcoming season's player budget. This will have severely restricted the club's offers to out of contract players. It follows, therefore, we will similarly be restricted in the quality of players we can attract.

I think much will depend on whether PP can convince higher level clubs to let us borrow some of their better fringe players on long term loans. The one potential problem in these deals is that, as the parent club will be paying the majority, or all, of their wages, they'll insist they'll be regularly selected.

My expectations are not high!

It's great to see Meredith repaying the fact he spent the majority of last season out injured on full sick pay by turning down our improved offer. Being honest I thought before he was injured he was struggling a little in this division and whilst we struggled more without him as we had no real left back I reckon Sheehan will be a great replacement and we will never know how Meredith would have been following such an injury and long lay off. He's a city hero but makes me a little sick that he didn't feel the need to put something back after last season.

Can you blame players wanting to leave the club that shows zero ambition?
Oh dear, yawn yawn
You absolute muppet if it wasn't for the chairman we wouldn't have a club.
we have heard that many times now but should it be an endless refrain?

I'm truly grateful to still have our club however i was taliking with another fan this week who is a little anti-lawn, and he stated that lawn has effectivley not put a penny into the club. His initial loan has been repaid and he was paid yearly in interst for this. we have made a a profit three out of last four seasons.

I believe that the chariman should be reimbursed for all the hard wok they put in but just because they saved the club should not mean they are free from criticism. Indeed when does this factor end?

Those who say or enquire where other buyers are? well we don't know exactly how much Rhodes and Lawn value the club at if they were wanting to sell.....lawn says he wants someone in but what that entails we are not privy to......

I'm all for not risking the club (although the chariman have confusingly reported having gone over budget on a few occasions) however we've made a profit, sold of assets, etc so as a fan we want to see profits put back in. I'm hoping there is a long term plan to build finances of the club untill the right opprtunity to 'go for it' in the same way the rhodes money got us into the premier league......

Its easy when its not my money but we lessen our chances by trying to do things on the cheap......
