Andy Gray in talks to rejoin Bantams

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Striker Andy Gray scored 21 goals in 81 games for City in the second tier between 2002 and 2004 Striker Andy Gray scored 21 goals in 81 games for City in the second tier between 2002 and 2004

Andy Gray could be in line for a sensational return to Valley Parade.

The former City striker is understood to be in talks to come back to the club he left in February 2004.

Gray, now 34, is a free agent after being released by Barnsley. He scored eight goals in the Championship last season.

With his vast experience, the well-travelled frontman would be the perfect mentor for James Hanson and Nahki Wells in the City firing line.

Joint-chairman Julian Rhodes today refused to comment on the speculation that an agreement has been reached with Gray, who netted 21 goals in 81 games during his 18-month spell at the club.

But Rhodes confirmed that City were continuing to pitch high for further signings after the coup of landing Andrew Davies.

He said: “It’s not that we are just going to sign Andrew, then the rest are going to be journeymen footballers. There are more of that ilk to follow.

“We’ve signed probably the best centre half in the division and we are looking at other players of equal stature. The budget will be a bit higher than what we were talking about but we want to get promotion.

“Andrew’s been good enough to commit early but some of the others will take longer. When you are a quality player, you’ll have a lot of options.

“They will take a bit of courting and want some time to think about things. But likewise we have plenty of options too.

“We aren’t just pursuing one player for one position. Like centre forward, we have a few targets but whatever one we do sign will raise eyebrows.”

Gray, the son of former Leeds full back Frank Gray, began his career at Elland Road. He appeared as a teenager in the 1996 League Cup final at Wembley.

He joined City from Nottingham Forest when they were first in administration in 2002.

Nicky Law originally signed him as a right winger but Gray converted into a striker and top-scored with 15 in his first year. That form earned him an international call-up and two caps for Scotland.

Gray found himself playing central midfield for a spell the following campaign before Sheffield United took advantage of City’s second slide into administration to snap him up for a knockdown £60,000 fee.

He is also a player that Phil Parkinson knows well from their time together at Charlton.

Gray spoke highly of his former manager when Parkinson got the Valley Parade hot-seat.

He told the T&A at the time: “Phil is very clued up on his football and players and very thorough in what he does.

“He’s ambitious to get Bradford up the leagues and it’s a good appointment.”

Did not rate him first time round. Not a natural goalscorer and not as good as what we have at the moment. In my opinion I wud like to see someone else come in.

To anyone who doesn't rate Andy Gray well he's spent most of his career at Championship level. He is in the same mould of Peter Thorne if not better. To be fair Thorne didn't do too bad in League 2 did he?
Well I'm pleased we're after these kind of players because going down the non-league route has not worked. We need players with ability (not saying players in NL have not got ability) and players that can cope from the pressures associated with playing for City. PP seems to know what he's doing. Leave him to it I say!

He is a different class of footballer who's has gained vast experience since 2004 and will be an absolute astute signing. Educate yourself before you open your gob in future pal.

Andy Gray might look like a gamble to some, but could be a trump card for us. His record at Championship level was good at Sheffield Utd and Burnley, and always seemed to be in the right place to score simple goals with us as a striker, yeah he's 34 but like someone said about Peter Thorne, he did ok for us didn't he, and he was similar. Don't knock this one, if we can land a tricky right winger we'd then have balance and with the midfield we have/hope to have i.e. Syers then we'll be a hard team to play in L2 next season. CTID

He wasn't my cup of tea first time round. Alwyas thought he was a little 'lightweight' and he isn;t a natuaral finisher. Someone comparing him to Thorne above needs to lie down as i don't think he was in Thornes class but hey its a matter of opnion.

However at this level and with his experience at higher levels he may prove useful. Indeed i'd expect him to offer more than Fagan did.....

I'm shouting from the rooftops that we are going to get promoted but i said a while ago i was quietly confident. We have the nucleus of a half decent side and the signings seem positive to me. A good right midfielder and a decent left back and we are not a million miles away. I wonder what all the knee jerk knobs from this sight will do if we put a decent team on the pitch next season and challenge for promotion!?

Some of you must have been drinking quite a lot last time Andy G was with us! Thought he was a great player with us and don't forget this was in the higher divisions. If he was bad then why has he spent the last 10 years in the championship? Also when he originally came to us from Forest he had been used as a winger.

Cmon City! Onwards and upwards!

I suppose it depends on how he will complement Wells, as I am sure he is the main goal threat we have. I didn’t go to every game but I don’t remember our midfield really out passing our opposition and building pressure. It was mainly “get to the ball first and hit a hopeful quick pass forward” (OK, I know its lower league). Fagan being unable to go past a defender can’t have helped. I don’t remember Gray being great at holding the ball up (unlike Campbell and Futcher) so unless we are going to improve our midfield I think his pace or lack of it is important. Actually what I really think we need is someone who can hold the ball up

Liked Andy Gray 1st time round, but this time I'm worried about his age. Thorne & Windass weren't that old when they came here.

Just checked and you're right. I thought they were about 30. Maybe he could do a job, even now.

Gray might not be the player he was but at the end of the day he is still good enough for League 2 and if he helps us to get out of this league then League 1 wont be far away. I say this every year, i feel confident we will do well this season but really do feel confident we can push for a play off place. Just a couple of more signings and we will be a strong contender. Come you bantams

As far as I am aware Alex, Haworth, Atkinson, Dagnal and Smalley have returned to their respective clubs. Fry has been invited back for pre season training.

I wasn't his biggest fan first time round due to him being a bit soft, but I didn't like many of that squad! However, he has vital experience, an eye for goal and if he stays fit could be a real coup in League 2.

He could do a job at this level if he performs week in week out. Personally I would put a pay per play contract to him and a goal bonus if he scores. As I remember John Hawley was an older player at this level was pretty prolific.
