After numerous of transfers throughout the country and millions of pounds spent over the last few months, the summer transfer window finally slammed shut for EFL and Premier League sides at 11:00pm on Wednesday (31 August 2016) evening.

With no emergency loans in place now from this season onwards, clubs will have to wait until the start of January to buy or loan any new players into their squads.

The Bantams managed to secure the loan signings of attackers Marc McNulty and Haris Vuckic before Wednesday evening's deadline, meaning City added twelve new players in total to their ranks during the summer transfer window.

Eight have been permanent signings - Nicky Law, Nathaniel Knight-Percival, Colin Doyle, Timothee Dieng, Romain Vincelot, Rouven Sattelmaier, Matthew Kilgallon and Vincent Rabiega - while four have been loan transfers - Jordy Hiwula, Josh Cullen, McNulty and Vuckic.

This Wednesday also saw one out-going at the Northern Commercials Stadium, with winger Paul Anderson leaving to join fellow Sky Bet League One side Northampton Town.

All this means this City's current squad looks like this:

Colin Doyle, Rouven Sattelmaier, Joe Cracknell (on loan to Bradford Park Avenue)

Stephen Darby, James Meredith, Nathan Clarke, Rory McArdle, Nathaniel Knight-Percival, James King, Matthew Kilgallon, Tony McMahon

Romain Vincelot, Timothee Dieng, Josh Cullen, Nicky Law, Mark Marshall, Filipe Morais, Daniel Devine, Haris Vuckic

Reece Webb-Foster, Vincent Rabiega, James Hanson, Billy Clarke, Jordy Hiwula, Marc McNulty

Apprentice quartet Ellis Hudson, Kwame Boateng, Niah Payne and Tom Windle also have squad numbers registered with the first team.

Elsewhere in League One, a number of other clubs were busy adjusting their squads ahead of the 11:00pm deadline.

Two other players with City connections also made a move on transfer deadline day. Andre Wisdom, who came through the Bantams' youth ranks, sealed a loan move to Red Bull Salzburg from Liverpool, while Adam Reach joined Sheffield Wednesday on a permanent deal for a fee in the region of £5 million.

Reach enjoyed a loan spell with City towards the end of the 2013/2014 season from former club Middlesbrough.
