Anthony O'Connor has today put pen to paper on a three-year contract with City.

The centre half rejected a new deal with Aberdeen, who he has helped secure two successive second-place finishes in the Scottish Premiership, and interest from elsewhere to join the Bantams.

The 25-year-old said: "When I spoke to the chairman (Edin Rahic) and Greg Abbott they really sold the club to me.

"Their vision for the club and what they want to achieve - they are very ambitious people similar to myself.

"When you look round and see the size of the stadium and the fan base of the club – it's something I really want to be part of and I'm glad that I’ve come and been able to get the deal over the line."

O'Connor, who helped Burton to promotion from League One in 2015-16, becomes the club's fourth summer signing despite the continuing long wait for a new head coach.

The Bantams have already snapped up Joe Riley, Josh Wright and Thomas Isherwood.

And former Irish under-21 international O'Connor insisted not knowing the identity of the new boss was not a issue for him. 

He said: "Whoever gets the job I’m sure they will work well with Greg and the chairman and the players.

"If we can all plug together and go in the same direction I am sure we can achieve something special."
