With a week to go until the start of the new season, the Bantams have pulled off a major transfer swoop by completing the signing of talented winger Paul Anderson.

Anderson, 27, has penned a two-year deal with City after finalising his move to the Coral Windows Stadium this Saturday morning. 

He is now in line to take his place in City's travelling squad to Burnley this Saturday afternoon for their final friendly of the summer.

A player with proven Championship quality, Anderson arrives at Valley Parade on a free transfer following his departure from Ipswich Town earlier this summer.

Anderson left Portman Road with seven assists to his name for last season - the most by any Ipswich player - and two goals including one in the Tractor Boys' Play-Off Semi-Final first leg with local rivals Norwich City.

Although predominately a right winger, Anderson has been known to fill in on the left-hand side when required.

He played 38 times for Ipswich during the 2014/2015 campaign, making 71 appearances in total for Mick McCarthy's side in his two-year spell at the club.

Before his time at Ipswich, Anderson has also played in the Championship for Bristol City and Nottingham Forest.

His only previous spell in League 1 came during the 2007/08 campaign with Swansea City when he helped the Welsh club to win the title that season.

Anderson began his professional career with Premier League giants Liverpool.
