Bradford City AFC has strengthened its goalkeeping department with the loan signing of Wolverhampton Wanderers stopper Joe O’Shaughnessy. 

The 6ft 6ins ‘keeper arrives at the University of Bradford Stadium on a deal until the end of the season, to offer depth alongside Harry Lewis, Colin Doyle and Heath Richardson. 

O’Shaughnessy joined Wolves in 2019. At 19 years old, his previous clubs include Burnley and Wrexham. 

He said: “I am buzzing it has happened, and am looking forward to being in and around the first team every day. 

“I am happy to be here and want to help the lads as much as possible. We have a good group of goalies, I have met the gaffer and all the boys were happy to see me. It has a great feel to the place.” 

City’s goalkeeping coach, Colin Doyle, said: “We needed another goalkeeper in, and it is good to be welcoming Joe. 

“Him coming in gives us another body to do a variety of different training with, which is beneficial for the whole group.

“He has looked good so far and we are looking forward to working with him more over the course of the season.”

O’Shaughnessy will be sponsored by Keybury Fire and Security during his time at the Bantams, with his signing subject to the relevant EFL and FA clearances.
