NEW RECRUIT Josh Wright hopes to reach his peak with the Bantams.

At 28, the midfielder (pictured) is likely to be one of the more experienced players in City’s squad next season. He has clocked up over 250 league appearances with spells at 10 different clubs including Scunthorpe, Millwall and Gillingham.

Looking to kick-start his career after a frustrating spell at Southend, he said: “ I just think I’ve got my best years ahead of me. I don’t feel I’m in my prime yet at 28.

“But what I’ve got is a lot of experience at Championship and League One level and even some in League Two.

“I know the league, I know the opposition, I know the opposition players and I’m sure I’ll be one of quite a few who can help and guide the young boys in the changing room.

“I’ve got character with me as well and I believe I’ve got good leadership qualities and other bits as well as what I can bring on the football pitch. You need all that in the changing room.”

City were remaining tight-lipped yesterday on the appointment of a new head coach and when it might happen.

Owner Edin Rahic said last week it was looking likely the club could reach an agreement this week but there has been no indication whether that is the case.

Wright is confident regardless that the Bantams can build towards a successful campaign.

He said: “Once I met Edin and spoke with Greg (Abott, head of recruitment), I saw where they want to take the club.

“They want to go forward and only have one aim – that’s obviously promotion and I want to be part of that.

“I think we’ve got a base already and I’m sure they will make more signings. Obviously they will get a new head coach and we can really push on.”
