Bradford sign QPR defender Rehman

Zeshan Rehman
Rehman has only played four games this season, all at Blackpool

Bradford City have signed centre-back Zesh Rehman on loan from Queens Park Rangers until the end of the season.

The 25-year-old Pakistan captain can also play at right-back and could feature for the Bantams on Tuesday evening at Bury.

Rehman told BBC Radio Leeds: "I spoke to the gaffer and chairman and I've been very impressed with their plans.

"This is a massive club, which shouldn't be in League Two. They should be in the Championship at least."

Rehman started his career at Fulham and has also played at Norwich and Brighton.

He spent time on loan at Rangers' Championship rivals Blackpool earlier this season and has not played since Blackpool's win at Birmingham on 20 September.

Rehman added: "The fact the club are so open to the Asian community is a major thing for me too.

"I was invited up to the club to have a chat and have been really impressed with everything I've seen."

Rehman's arrival at Valley Parade has seen fellow defender Mark Bower go out on loan to League Two's bottom club Luton Town.

The centre-back has only made on start this season for City and joins Luton for a month.
