Ross Hannah’s move to Grimsby has been confirmed today as the striker signed a two-and-half year deal for an undisclosed sum.

The striker scored nine goals for the Conference side in an impressive loan spell before returning to the Bantams before Christmas.

Grimsby Town director John Fenty explained on the Mariners' website: “We are delighted that the deal is done. It’s been a tedious deal to say the least. The deal was made more complex by the fact that he had a successful loan spell here.

“That and to some degree, coupled with our position in the league, Bradford were able to exploit a fee considerably higher than we had wished for.

“Agents, fan speculation and other clubs' interest made it nonetheless easier and we are pleased to have finally completed the deal today."
