BRADFORD (Park Avenue) have brought in some competition for Dan Atkinson by signing another ex-Leeds United goalkeeper.

Will Huffer joins Horsfall on a short-term deal after being released from Elland Road at the end of last season due to struggling with a long-term wrist injury.

The 21-year-old signed his first professional contract back in 2017 for the Whites, and managed to make one start under Marcelo Bielsa in their 2018-19 Championship campaign, a 2-0 win over Bristol City.

Due to Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Jamal Blackman's injuries, he remained the club's number two until the signing of Spanish international Kiko Casilla from Real Madrid in the January.

This forced the Londoner to go out on loan to gain some first team experience at National League side Barnet where he made five appearances before being recalled.

Like Bradford's number one, the six foot, four keeper has also represented England at under 16, 17 and 18 level.

Huffer, who joins Atkinson and Matty Downing as the other former Leeds players in the Avenue squad, said: "I’m really excited to sign for BPA and be able to help the team push forward and have a successful season.

"On a personal level, I’m grateful for the opportunity to play some football and hopefully I’ll be able to repay the trust by putting in some good performances."

His new boss Mark Bower added: "We’re delighted to get Will signed up.

"He has been training with us recently after a spell out of the game and it has been obvious to see his natural ability.

"Will’s signing means we have two outstanding goalkeepers, both young and with bright futures in the game."
