Bradford City AFC is delighted to announce the signing of central defender Aden Baldwin, on an initial two-year contract.

The 26-year-old arrives at the University of Bradford Stadium on a deal until the summer of 2026, following the expiry of his contract at Notts County.

A product of Forest Green Rovers’ academy, Baldwin signed his first professional contract at The New Lawn in 2015 before earning a move to Sky Bet Championship side Bristol City in 2016.

Loan spells followed at Weston-super-Mare, Cheltenham Town and Eastleigh before he spent the 2021/22 season at MK Dons.

He signed for the Magpies in June 2022, spending two seasons at Meadow Lane, making 79 appearances. His two goals in a 3-2 National League Play-Off Semi-Final win over Boreham Wood in May 2023 secured County’s place at Wembley for the final, where they beat Chesterfield on penalties to secure their place back in League Two.

On joining the Bantams, Baldwin said: “I am delighted to get the deal done. I have had a few really good conversations with the gaffer, and am buzzing to be here.

“I am a mobile centre-back and I also like to play with the ball at my feet, out from the back.

“I like to play in front of big crowds and lots of fans, so hopefully that allows me to play my best game. I missed the opportunity to play here last year, so am really looking forward to doing it for this club.

“I am happy to get the deal sorted early on as I can now settle in with the team and get to grips with the environment. Hopefully, the fans can turn out in their numbers, and we can give them a successful season.”

City boss Graham Alexander said: “I am excited about bringing a player of Aden's talent on board.

“He has excellent defensive attributes and his quality in possession will bring another dimension to our attacking play. 

“He is another player with promotion experience. I am delighted he decided to join our quest for success, and am sure his teammates and our supporters will appreciate what he will add to our club.”

Aden Baldwin will be sponsored by Commerce Business Systems for the 2024/25 campaign. For details on sponsoring a player, please email
