Bantams boss keen to loan striker
Zema Abbey
Abbey scored on his debut but failed to impress City boss Colin Todd
Colin Todd is chasing a striker after ending Zema Abbey's loan at Bradford and learning that Sheffield United's Luke Beckett has joined Huddersfield.

City boss Todd said: "Zema was sent off on his debut at Brentford, missed three games and he has not been able to show his potential since coming back."

On Beckett, Todd told the Telegraph & Argus: "There were a few clubs after him but it was Huddersfield or nowhere.

"The priority is to bring a new striker in and I will keep looking."

Blades forward Beckett added: "There were a lot of local clubs interested but I remembered playing at Huddersfield and being impressed by their facilities."
