Could former Leeds United boss Neil Warnock take a job at Bradford City?

Former Leeds United and Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock could take up a role with Bradford City, report The Sun.

League One side Bradford are currently in the midst of takeover discussions with Gianni Paladini, with The BBC reporting on Friday that the Italian had negotiated to extend his period of exclusivity as a potential buyer.

The Sun report that Neil Warnock is a close pal of Paladini, and is under consideration to be appointed as director of football at the Bantams.

Warnock has been out of work since being sacked as manager by Crystal Palace earlier this season, just months into the role.

He has plenty of experience in the Football League, with Bradford City's Yorkshire rivals Leeds United where he was manager in 2012/13.

Warnock has also managed Sheffield United, Bury, Oldham, and QPR where he worked with Paladini.

Paladini is the former chairman of QPR, leaving the club in 2011.

This season Bradford City finished seventh in League One, one place away from a play-off spot.
