Ritchie Jones: Free transfer signing

The 26-year-old, who began his career as a trainee at Manchester United, was a free agent after leaving the Bantams in January.

Dale boss Keith Hill told the club's official website: "He's got an abundance of ability and he's a naturally gifted player who wanted to come here.

"He had opportunities to go to other League Two clubs but feels as though this is the best place to re-start his career.

"He can play a number of roles including centre midfield which is his preferred position but, when you've got the likes of Andy Haworth, then I feel as though we need to address the balance on the opposite of the pitch."

Jones made 10 appearances for City this season, with his only goal coming against Port Vale on December 4.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
