A rumour has reached Width of a Post’s ear that York City defender James Meredith will sign for Bradford City tomorrow.
The 24-year-old left back has made 131 appearances for the Minstermen, which included playing a big role in their return to the Football League. Originally from Australia, Meredith was spotted at 16-years-old by a Derby County scout and moved to England; but he failed to make the grade at Pride Park, joining York in 2009 after the odd loan move here and there.
Like the imminent arrival of Will Atkinson, this possible move shows that Phil Parkinson is looking for experience in his signings, but not necessarily elder players. Although Meredith has barely played in the Football League, his grounding for York City suggests he should be capable of making the step up at Valley Parade and filling the left back role which became a problem at the end of last season (right back Rob Kozluk filling it).
More news is expected shortly.
