Bradford have allowed Alan Connell and Ricky Ravenhill to leave the club, with both players signing contracts with Northampton.
Connell was widely anticipated to join the Cobblers, at least leave Valley Parade this week but as much as Ravenhill might have previously been made aware his future lay away from the club earlier in the season he had come back into the Bantams first-team picture since his recall from a loan at Sixfields before Christmas.
Both players would have been out of contract in the summer so the club agreed to mutually cancel their contracts to allow them free to join the league two strugglers, who Bradford beat in last seasons play-off final of course.
Phil Parkinson explained the deal on the official website with the boss saying: 'Alan hasn't featured for the club for a bit now and he was always going to move on in this window. He is a player who needs games and we hope he will get them at Northampton.
'Ricky's situation is slightly different because he has been starting some games recently because of Doyley's (Nathan Doyle) injury. We had an agreement with Ricky, however, that if he got offered a longer contract somewhere else then we'd look at letting him go.
'He had an opportunity to get a longer deal at Northampton and he wanted to take it.
'Ricky's departure now gives us the opportunity to maybe bring in another midfielder to see us over between now and the end of the season.'
30-year-old Connell has signed a contract until the end of the season with 33-year-old Ravenhill penning an 18-month deal.
This site is looking for an editor (at least contributor), so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
