FILIPE Morais today gave Bradford City a much-needed boost by joining them on a short-term contract.

The 28-year-old Portuguese winger, who started his career at Chelsea, was a free agent after being released by Stevenage at the end of last season.

The much-travelled wideman will give Bantams boss Phil Parkinson another option ahead of tomorrow’s Sky Bet League One opener at home to Coventry City.

Morais has been training with Phil Parkinson's squad for the past couple of weeks ahead of his move to the Bantams.

 With fellow new signings Ben Williams, Mo Shariff and Matt Urwin taking squad numbers 12, 16 and 22 respectively, Morais has elected for number 20 for this season.

Having spent the past two seasons with Stevenage, Morais previously played for Oldham Athletic after spellsnorth of the border with Hibernian, Inverness Caledonian Thistle and St Johnstone.

 Having moved to London from Portugal with his family when he was a child, Morais began his professional career with Chelsea back in 2005.

He also spent a season with Millwall in 2006 before beginning his spell three-year period in Scotland.

Is he a left winger? The left winger for Stevenage last year was about the only player I can remember who gave Darby a proper going over.

There is a video on youtube showcasing his talents:

Can play left/right wing or no. 10 apparently. By the looks of the video, he's got a great first touch, a turn of pace and can cross the ball well.

Looks like a great addition!

You are obviously not a supporter of Bradford City, you have a made ridiculous comment about players you don't even know, they have never kicked a ball for Bradford City in anger and yet you find something to be negative about, Give the lads a chance to prove themselves for goodness sake, short term contracts are not bad news, it just means lets take a look at you and if you are good enough we will give you a better deal, Simples

Parky has assembled a potentially strong squad of 21..all except Ben Williams have either been with the club for years, months or at least a couple of weeks already. .so have shown what they are capable of to the management and begun the integration process....this squad is strong, well covered now and affordable. ..let's hope they are all also as hungry as the supporters and a play off challenge is certainly a possibility!

And what are you basing this ridiculous comment on exactly? You ever seen any of them play? Come on then Guardiola give us your list of players we could sign that you would be happy with? No? Thought not!

And you're just moaning for the sake of it now. The squad is looking much better than a couple of days ago. Bet you (and those like you) will be gutted if we get a win tomorrow.
