Reece Burke has won Bradford City's Player of the Season award, after impressing on loan from West Ham United.

Josh Cullen has congratulated his West Ham United teammate Reece Burke on winning Bradford City’s Player of the Season award yesterday.

Burke has been on loan at Bradford since August, and he has made a huge impression at Vicarage Road.

The 19-year-old has made 34 appearances for Phil Parkinson’s side, as they have moved into promotion contention in League One.

Cullen joined Burke in moving on loan to Bradford in the January transfer window, and the Hammers academy prospect was delighted to see his friend earn such recognition.

Some West Ham fans have already called for Burke to be recalled and handed a place in Slaven Bilic’s first-team, but owner David Gold moved to calm these suggestions earlier today.

Burke, instead, seems set to remain with Bradford - where he will be hoping to be part of a successful promotion push.

Phil Parkinson’s men are currently in fifth place in the League One standings, and they look likely to be competing in the play offs in May.
