Mclean looking to make an impact

16 January 2014

Bantams striker Aaron Mclean says he wants to hit the ground running for his new club.

Mclean became City's latest signing this Thursday after joining the club from Premier League side Hull City on a two-and-a-half year deal.

Fresh from signing his Bradford contract, the new Bantams forward is now expected to come into contention for a debut City appearance in Saturday's Yorkshire derby at Sheffield United. 

Mclean trained with his new City team-mates for the first time this Thursday ahead of the weekend trip to Bramall Lane.

The 30 year-old is excited by the prospect of seeing action so soon after his arrival and he is eager to play his part in helping to get City moving up the League 1 table.

Mclean said: "I've come here to make an impact and to try and score plenty of goals for Bradford.

"Going into the Sheffield United game this weekend, there should be a great atmosphere in the stadium and it's a game I'm really looking forward to. I can't wait to get started really.

"I'm excited for my first game for Bradford, and what a game it is - Sheffield United in a Yorkshire derby.

"These are the sort of games I enjoy though. I wouldn't be coming down a level to a club in League 1 if the club didn't have any ambition.

"I am ambitious too, and I can't wait to get back out on the pitch and hopefully get back in the goals again.

"Bradford are a big club who could easily be in the level above this one.

"There is a great stadium and a great set of supporters here. I couldn't turn down the opportunity to come here, hopefully score a lot of goals here, and help push Bradford on even further.

"I've been at this level before with Peterborough and I hope I can bring my experience to the team.

"I know that every game in League 1 is a tough fixture and I am ready for that. I certainly don't mind working hard and testing myself in tough games. I have no problems at all with coming back to this level.

"I am ready to put in the hard work and get this club higher up the divisions.

"I've spoken to the manager already about how the team plays, how he wants me to fit in and what he expects of me, and it all suits me down to the ground.

"I'm excited by the other attacking options that are already here at the club. I feel can benefit a lot from the likes of James Hanson and the wingers if I make the right runs and right gambles."
