Bradford City AFC is delighted to announce the signing of striker Tom Elliott - on loan from Salford City. 

The experienced frontman arrives at the Utilita Energy Stadium on a deal until the end of the 2021/22 season. 

At 6ft 4ins, Leeds-born Elliott began his career with Leeds United having graduated from the Thorp Arch academy, and has more recently served spells at the likes of Millwall, AFC Wimbledon and Cambridge United. 

The former England youth international has 49 appearances to his name for the Ammies, since signing in January 2020. 

He said: “I am delighted to be here at a great club with a huge fanbase, and am just looking forward to getting the ball rolling and getting some games played. 

“I remember playing at Valley Parade a few weeks ago and the team put plenty of crosses into the box, which I will try to feed off to get as many goals as I can. 

“I am a big, strong, physical presence and can just hopefully help the team get up the table towards the promotion spots. 

“The boys got a good win against Walsall and we are looking to keep that going. I cannot wait to get out there and help take the team up the league.”

City manager Derek Adams added: “Tom is a player I have known about for many years, so we are pleased to be bringing him in on loan until the end of the season, to aid our promotion push. 

“He went up to Scotland to play for Hamilton Academical early in his career, and I have tracked his progress for many years since.

“He has the ability to bring others into the game, is good in air and provides a platform for other forward players to excel. 

“He wants to score, can run in behind and is a striker who is difficult to play against, so we are looking forward to seeing him in action for us.”

Elliott will wear No.23 for the Bantams and be sponsored by Strasse Porsche. His signing is subject to the relevant EFL and FA clearances.
