Striker leaves on Emergency Loan

Huddersfield Town striker Jonathan Stead has joined Sky Bet League 1 side Bradford City on an Emergency Loan until the end of the season.

The 30 year-old, who spent a month on loan at Oldham earlier this year, has joined the Bantams ahead of today’s 5pm Emergency Loan window deadline.

Stead re-joined Huddersfield Town on a free transfer in the summer from relegated Bristol City after starting his career at ‘The Yorkshire Club’. Jon has made six starts and eight substitute appearances, netting one goal at home to Leeds United. One of those appearances – as a substitute – has come in 2014. 

The striker is a graduate of the Club’s Academy and scored 22 goals in 54 league games during his first spell before joining Premier League Blackburn for £1.25m.

During his time at Oldham in February 2014, the striker made five appearances for the Latics Managed by Phil Parkinson, Bradford City have eight games of the League 1 season remaining. 

Huddersfield Town Manager Mark Robins said:

“Jon needs to be playing regular first team football and at this moment in time that is something we can’t guarantee him.

“We have good options in attack and following the interest from Bradford City we believe that this a good move for all parties.

Bradford hope to have him available for the trip to promotion chasing Leyton Orient on Saturday.
