CITY have this afternoon clinched the double loan signing of striker George Miller and midfielder Jack Payne.

Miller has joined the Bantams from Middlesbrough for the season after scoring eight goals in 19 appearances during a half-season stint at Bury. That included the last-gasp equaliser in a 2-2 draw at Valley Parade in February.

Payne has arrived from Huddersfield for the same length of time after winning promotion with Blackburn in May.

The playmaker spent the first half of last season on loan at Oxford, where he scored seven times and claimed eight assists.

He was recalled by the Terriers in January and then sent out again to Blackburn, helping Tony Mowbray's side clinch an instant return to the Championship.
