THE name Windass is synonymous in Bradford's footballing folklore.

Fan favourite Dean is a City legend with his 87 goals in two spells propelling him to become the club's third-highest goalscorer.

It is one of his sons that is making headlines this time though, as he has signed for the Bantams' inner-city rivals.

Dean's youngest child Jordan has joined Bradford (Park Avenue).

The former Gainsborough Trinity and Liversedge man impressed while on-trial at the Horsfall-based side this pre-season.

Windass, who can also play in midfielder, is expected to fill the void at right back.

Previously, Mark Bower only had the experienced head of Ryan Toulson to call upon in that position.

Jordan will be aiming to follow in the footsteps of his brother Josh.

The creative player started his career at non-league team Harrogate Railway Athletic before climbing up the leagues to play for the likes of Accrington Stanley, Rangers and Wigan Athletic.

The 26-year-old is currently plying his trade in South Yorkshire for Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

Jordan Windass told the Avenue's website: "I am delighted to have signed for Bradford and I am really looking forward to working under Bowz (Bower) and Bosh (Danny Boshell).

"They have been great to me since I came to the club and made it clear what they want out of me and the team.

"I am also excited for the challenge of playing at this level since it’s my first time.

"Hopefully I can learn a lot from the likes of Toulson and the older lads, to become a better player and hopefully have a successful season with a great bunch of lads."

Boss Bower added: "Jordan has been with us on and off for a few seasons now.

"We have kept an eye on his development and he has come back to us in pre-season in fantastic physical shape.

"He possesses some real attributes and has areas to improve, so we are looking forward to helping him reach his full potential."

Park Avenue fans can expect to see Windass in action, via a live video stream, on Tuesday at Farsley Celtic's Citadel.

The behind closed doors friendly will act as a precursor to Bradford's final pre-season game away at Spennymoor Town the following Saturday.
