Bradford City have made a dual signing by bringing in Gillingham striker Mark McCammon on a one-month loan, as well as winger Gavin Grant.

Former Millwall and Wycombe man Grant, 25, who arrives on non-contract terms, played for new Bradford boss Peter Taylor last season at Adams Park.

And much-travelled 31-year-old McCammon comes in search of first team football, having not started a game in 2010.

"Going out on loan will be good for him," said Gills boss Mark Stimson.

"He needs games and, if he comes back fit in four weeks, that would be great.

"We want him sharp and scoring goals," Stimson told BBC Radio Kent. "Then he could come back because we might need someone like him.

He didn't want to drop down to League Two, but it might get his career back on track

"Last season he stepped in and put in a good shift. At the moment he's frustrated, like all the other boys who are not playing.

"He didn't want to drop down to League Two, but it might get his career back on track."

McCammon started his career at Cambridge and has also played for Charlton Athletic, Swindon Town, Brentford, Millwall, Brighton, Bristol City and Doncaster Rovers.

He had also been a target for Bradford's League Two Yorkshire rivals Rotherham United.

But Millers boss Ronnie Moore told BBC Radio Sheffield: "Everything seemed fine, then we had a call late on from the agent saying he'd had a change of mind and he's going to Bradford. It's disappointing for us.

"Is it the ground? Is there some other reason why he's not come? It disappoints you because I know they get 11,000 or whatever it is they've got in season ticket holders there. Maybe he's gone for that reason."
