GARY Bowyer will still be keeping tabs on the free-agent market.

The transfer window shut on Monday with the late arrival of loan pair Aramide Oteh and Dylan Connolly taking City’s recruitment up to 15 signings.

It has been a major overhaul under Bowyer who has been pleased with the work achievement in his first chance to remould the squad.

But the opportunity remains for clubs to pick up unattached players, as David Hopkin did last season with Paul Caddis and Karl Henry. It is something that Bowyer will monitor.

He said: “You have to keep an eye on it as much as you can.

“There might be somebody, for example, you’ve missed who is playing abroad and has come back into England. Someone like that you might not have been made aware of.

“But the concentration now is getting everybody fit and well, getting them up to speed in minutes and having a right good go at this league now.”

Bowyer will not be rekindling his interest in Chris Taylor, who played for him previously at Blackburn and Blackpool.

The midfielder was on trial with the Bantams in pre-season and featured in friendlies against Brighouse and Liverpool.

Taylor had been lined up for a move to Bury, which obviously never materialised. But Bowyer confirmed he was not on his list.

He added: “No, he wouldn’t be. I was led to believe he was possibly going to Scotland.”
