City new boy Levi Sutton has enjoyed his first days in claret and amber, as pre-season preparations continue.

Stuart McCall’s men began non-contact training on Thursday, with the Bantams boss' maiden summer recruit getting his first taste at the club.

The midfielder has been impressed by what he has seen so far and is looking forward to the second week.

He said: “It has been great being back out after months of uncertainty. I am delighted to be a Bradford City player and everyone at the club has welcomed me with open arms.

“Pre-season is one of those things, it is not going to be an easy ride.

“The effort levels have been great so far and I am sure they will keep rising, as we head into contact training.

“I knew a few of the lads before I came here. From the work we have done so far, I have been impressed with the group of players we have.

“Hopefully, we can hit the ground running ahead of the 2020/21 season.”

Sutton is hoping for a successful term while back under the stewardship of McCall.

The 23-year-old is excited for the campaign to begin and by the prospect of playing at the Utilita Energy Stadium.

He added: “When you join a club as big as this one, everything else comes with it.

“The training ground - and going to the stadium and seeing how big it is - really excites me, and I cannot wait to get going properly.

“Kenny (Black) and the gaffer were one of the main reasons for me coming here. I have obviously worked with them before and know what they are about.

“I played some of the best football of my career so far under them at Scunthorpe.

“To link up with them both again and come to this fantastic club was something I was very keen to do.

“There are no secrets about what we want to achieve this season. The minimum is to get in the play-offs, but automatic promotion is certainly not out of the question.”
