FORMER City loanee Jack Payne has found a new club.

The 24-year-old attacking midfielder, who spent last season on loan at the Bantams, has joined League One new boys Lincoln City on a free transfer.

Payne left Huddersfield Town following the expiration of his contract with the Terriers.

He spent the whole of last season at Valley Parade, making 39 appearances and scoring nine goals, after City significantly increased their contribution to his wages in ensuring he remained at Valley Parade after January.

Yet his form dipped in the second half of the campaign after he had impressed earlier in the season, particularly during City's purple patch in December.
