Scunthorpe set to land Bradford's Josh Morris

HITC Sport understands Bradford midfielder set for move to League One rivals.

Bradford City midfielder Josh Morris is poised to join League One rivals Scunthorpe United, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Scunthorpe boss Graham Alexander is keen to reshape his side this season after seeing them narrowly miss out on the League One play-offs last time out.

Alexander is a big fan of Morris having twice signed the player on loan from Blackburn Rovers while he was in charge of Fleetwood Town.

Morris helped Fleetwood win promotion from League Two during his time at the club and the following season he made 45 appearances and scored eight goals in League One for Fleetwood.

Alexander believes Morris will prove a valuable addition to his plans at Scunthorpe as he can also play full-back as well as in midfield.

The 24-year-old joined Bradford last summer on a free transfer from Blackburn, but he made only four appearances for the Bantams.

Scunthorpe have now moved quickly to try and agree a deal for Morris as Alexander looks to make his first new signing of the summer.
