Bradford City said:

“Bradford City have given permission to QPR to speak with keeper Donovan Ricketts after an undisclosed fee was agreed between the two clubs”

“The Championship club made their move after watching the Jamaican international in action at Wrexham on Saturday”


QPR accompanied this by saying:

“Queens Park Rangers can confirm Bradford City custodian Donovan Ricketts is in West London for talks ahead of a proposed transfer to Loftus Road.”

“The Jamaican international travelled south today (Monday) after Rangers agreed an undisclosed fee with the League Two outfit for the stoppers` services. He is due to undergo a medical this afternoon”

  • Not sure this is really a wise move for the club, don’t know if any Bradford fans have an opinion of this.. Is he worthy of Championship football?

  • He’s a very young player so there is still a lot of learning for him to do. He’s not going to be a first pick anyway but he’ll learn his trade I’m sure.

  • He is 30, thats hardly that young, just think we’d be better served going for someone who is proven at this level. I could be way off the mark and he could be a revelation, and I hope thats the case.

  • In reply to Wellers…..the feedsweep format played up last night. Got in touch with the provider in Edmonton, Canada and bingo, all sorted.
