Bradford (Park Avenue) have today signed right-back Isaiah Bazeley-Graham on loan from Premier League side Aston Villa.
The 19-year-old full-back has joined Marcus Law’s side until January, being allowed to leave Dean Smith’s top flight side on loan.
Bazeley-Graham has featured heavily for Villa’s under-23 side since the start of last season, without managing to break through into the senior set-up.
He was also part of Villa’s success in the annual end of season ‘Soccer Sevens’ trophy, a competition which has previously seen Villa blood the likes of Jack Grealish and Gabby Agbonlahor.
Right-back was a position Law knew he needed to strengthen in, especially after Mitch Lund was forced off at half-time in the win over Darlington on Monday with a groin injury.
Bazeley-Graham goes straight into the squad for Saturday’s home match against AFC Telford United.
