Connor Ripley: Extended his loan deal

The 20-year-old joined Bradford at the start of the season and is poised to make his debut for the club in Tuesday night's Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie against Hartlepool.

Bantams boss Phil Parkinson told the club's official website: "Connor has worked hard since he's come here - he's worked very hard in training and has a lot of good attributes.

"He's a good distributor of the ball, he's big and he's athletic. Obviously he lacks experience at the moment - that's why we've got him. But we're going to play him (on Tuesday night) to give him a game.

"He deserves it for the way he's trained and the attitude he's shown despite not being in the side up until now."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
