McLean/Dagnall in frame to replace Nahki

10 Jan

By Jason McKeown

Width of a Post understands that Hull City striker Aaron McLean could be lining up to sign for Bradford City as Nahki Wells’ replacement. The 30-year-old has been restricted to just 11 appearances for the newly-promoted Premier League Tigers, although did score in their last match, a 2-0 FA Cup victory over Middlesbrough.

McLean began his career at Leyton Orient and made his name at Peterborough United, where he was a key part of their double promotion from League Two to the Championship, between 2007 and 2009. Earlier this season, Aaron had a loan spell at Birmingham.

Another name mentioned to us this afternoon is former City loanee Chris Dagnall, who Phil Parkinson brought to Valley Parade two seasons ago. Dagnall subsequently re-established himself at Barnsley but has struggled to get game time with the Championship club this season. He has just completed a loan spell at Coventry and being made a free agent by Barnsley.

    A good positive comment by Dan!!!

    Think McLean could be an excellent signing – fell he would work very well with Hanson and would use his experience, something which wells lacked at times.

    We just need to make sure he is over his injuries as he hasn’t played much in previous seasons.

    Not sure about Dagnall, he didn’t do much in his previous spell but would be more then willing to give him another chance.

      In his last spell he scored against Crawley and missed the rest of the time injured with a back injury. If I remember correctly he played with the injury in order to impress PP and it back fired. Either name sounds ok as long as we supplement the squad with younger up and coming players with a view to the long term.

        I must admit I would take either player at the moment as we need some goals.

        I would like to see the money from nahki’s invested in 3/4 good young players who are performing well in the league below or from the championship. Hopefully these players will be with us when we make the championship or we can make a decent profit on them

    McLean would be an excellent signing depending on the cost, Dagnall, no thanks. He was poor last time when he was in a similar position at Barnsley. He’s not worth the risk.

      Re Dan’s opening comment. Wonder if he called Nahki Wells a “nobody” when he first signed?

    They are both not very good, their goal scoring average is shocking. I really hope we do not get them
