Bradford City AFC is delighted to announce the loan capture of goalkeeper Alex Bass - who joins from Sky Bet League One side Portsmouth. 

The 23-year-old stopper arrives at the Utilita Energy Stadium on a deal until the end of the 2021/22 season. 

At 6ft 3ins, Bass has seven appearances to his name for Pompey this season, keeping two clean sheets in as many League One starts. 

The Eastleigh-born ‘keeper graduated from the Fratton Park academy, and has also served time on loan at Salisbury, Torquay United and Southend United, as well as winning the PFA League One Player of the Month award in February 2020. 

He said: “It is a pleasure to be here. The manager has been watching me for a while and spoke about the opportunity to come to Bradford City, and it was one I was delighted to take. 

“Playing in front of vocal supporters is something I am used to from my time at Portsmouth. I am looking forward to playing football in front of a great fanbase up here, and taking on a new challenge. I cannot wait to get going. 

“I have a couple of days of training now to get to know the boys and build relationships with everyone, before getting ready to attack the game on Tuesday.”

City manager Derek Adams said: “Alex is a player I have watched for a number of years at Portsmouth, so I am pleased to be able to bring him to the club. 

“He came through the youth system at Portsmouth when I was manager of Plymouth Argyle. He is very highly thought of there and arrives with me having monitored his progress closely.

“Alex has experience of playing in League One with Portsmouth this season, and carries a lot of attributes I value in a goalkeeper, so I am looking forward to seeing him perform at Bradford City.”

Bass will wear No.12 for the Bantams. His signing is subject to the relevant EFL and FA clearances.
