Andy Cook expressed his eagerness at the prospect of making his debut in claret and amber - ahead of Saturday’s visit of Barrow.
The experienced frontman arrived at the Utilita Energy Stadium yesterday, having put pen to paper on a loan deal - until the end of the season - from Mansfield Town.
While respecting the competition for minutes in City’s forward department, the former Bluebirds striker is desperate to make his Bantams bow on Saturday.
He said: “I have arrived just after the boys had an impressive result on Tuesday, and am really happy to be here.
“If I do play on Saturday, I will be delighted. If I do not, I will be patient for my opportunity - which I aim to take when it arrives.
“It would be great if I did make my debut against a former club in Barrow at the weekend.
“But my focus is on Bradford City. The main thing is that the team keeps on picking up victories and climbing the table.”
Cook also admitted how keen he was to join the Bantams - once interest had been shown.
The Englishmen claims when he received a phone call confirming the deal was done, he was delighted to be joining such a big club.
He added: “When the move was confirmed I was very happy.
“This is a massive club and, when the call came in, it was an easy decision to make. I jumped at the opportunity to join.
“Not only am I at an ex-Premier League club, but also a club with a great stadium with the lads currently on a great run of form.
“This move means a lot to both me and my family, and I just cannot wait to get out on the field hopefully putting in good performances for Bradford City.”
