Taylor, 31, has signed a two-year contract at Valley Parade following his release from Charlton, while Nelson has returned to Scotland with Hibs for an undisclosed fee after joining Bradford from Kilmarnock in January.

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson said: "Matt is a good signing for us. He played a key role in the Charlton side that got promoted to the Championship a couple of seasons ago and was part of a successful Exeter side before that.

"He's a good age for a centre-half and he's a winner. I'm sure the supporters will enjoy watching him play because he gives it his all.

"Nelse had the opportunity to go back up to Scotland, but I needed both deals to work before either one could go through.

"We have a tight-knit group here, so I couldn't afford to give someone up if I wasn't able to bring someone else in.

"Nelse came in last season and played his part in helping the side into the Play-Offs, and we thank him for that."

Taylor, who began his career at Exeter, made 14 appearances for Charlton in the Championship last season and Nelson, 33, played the same number of games for Bradford.

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
