GRAHAM Alexander has hinted that City will push to bring back Tyreik Wright and Daniel Oyegoke next season.

The Bantams boss has revealed that the club hierarchy are “pretty much” there in terms of deciding which of the out-of-contract members of the squad they will try to keep in the summer.

But loan captures Wright and Oyegoke could also be in Alexander’s thinking after admitting they “fit the profile” of the type of players he is after.

Alexander said: “They’ve got great quality, good physical attributes and they are really good professionals.

“They are great to get on with and train really well. They are ambitious as well and that’s the profile we want the squad to be.

“You have to be able to see those qualities and elements in the individuals you have.

“That’s why we were all determined to keep hold of Dan’s registration when he got injured. We wanted him to come back.

“Tyreik’s in his second spell with the club after his first really positive and successful one.

“They are both at big clubs and financially it could be difficult. But certainly as individuals go, they tick a lot of boxes.”

Wright still has one more year to go on the Plymouth contract he signed when he left Valley Parade first time around in January 2023. Argyle also have the option of extending it by a further 12 months after that.

Oyegoke’s three-year deal at Brentford is up at the end of the season but again there is an option in the Premier League club’s favour.

His loan with the Bantams was put on hold for four months after dislocating his shoulder during Alexander’s first game in charge against Barrow.

The surgery that followed meant a lengthy period of recovery back in West London. But City negotiated a deal with his parent club to pay a nominal amount to keep the loan ticking over until he was able to head back north.

Wright has also had his injury issues since his popular City return.

He missed nearly four weeks following his second Bantams “debut” after feeling the effects of starting a game for the first time in five months.

Both also came off in the second half of Saturday’s win at Salford, although Alexander expects them to be fine for the trip to Walsall this weekend.

He added: “It’s been really stop-start for both of them, to be honest.

“Dan came on as sub in my first game and got injured after 10 minutes. Then Tyreik went off injured in his first game under me and missed a month.

“They are two really dynamic on the physical front, really quick and powerful.

“They don’t play in a careful physical way, they are all out and very pacey. We just have to make sure that they can repeat that come Saturday.

“We don’t want to put them at risk but ideally we don’t want to make any significant changes to the team when we’re in this form and all the boys deserve to play.

“But we’ll do that if we have to. We have to make sure the physical output of the team stays the same for us to continue winning if possible.”
