Bradford City supporters rave about West Ham United youngster Reece Burke on Twitter, after loan deal extended

Bradford City stadium

Reece Burke has made five appearances for Bradford City so far, since joining on loan from West Ham United.

Bradford City supporters are delighted that West Ham United defender Reece Burke has agreed to lengthen his loan period at the club.

The defender will stay with the Hammers until the middle of October, after the clubs agreed to extend his temporary spell earlier today - announced on the Bantams' official website

The news has gone down very well at the Coral Windows Stadium, where Burke has made a positive impression with his initial displays.

The 19-year-old has only had limited taste of first-team action so far, with a handful of appearances for West Ham's senior side the extent of his previous experience in senior football, but he has wasted no time in starring for Bradford. 

The centre-back has tightened up Phil Parkinson's defence during his short time with the Bantams so far, with his commanding displays helping the side to pick up some encouraging results. 

Bradford are unbeaten in the five matches that Burke has played for them so far, and they will be hoping that their run of good form continues. 

Here is some of the reaction from Bradford fans on social media site Twitter to Burke's general performances over his loan spell so far.
