A BRADFORD club have added a young striker who made football history to their ranks.

Blackpool forward Jack Daniels has signed a one-month loan deal at Bradford (Park Avenue).

In May 2022, Daniels, aged 17, came out as gay becoming the UK's only male professional footballer to be publicly out at the time, and the first since Justin Fashanu in 1990.

His decision to come out was praised by then-Prime Minister Boris Johnson, FA president Prince William and England captain Harry Kane.

After starring in the youth ranks, he played in the Blackpool first team before securing a loan move at Bamber Bridge.

A statement on the club's website read: "We can today confirm the signing of Blackpool forward Jake Daniels, on an initial one-month deal. 

"Jake joined the Blackpool Academy at the age of seven and has featured regularly for the youth team in the 2021/22 campaign. 

"Rewarded with a professional contract in February 2022, he scored 30 goals during the season, won the Youth Team’s Player of the Season award and made his first-team debut against Peterborough United. 

"He also enjoyed a productive loan spell with Bamber Bridge at the end of the 2021/22 season.

"Jake is available for selection in today’s match vs Warrington Rylands (3pm)."
