Huddersfield Town winger Sean Scannell is in talks with Bradford over a potential move to the League One club, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Bradford are keen to bolster their attacking options before the start of the new season and have identified Scannell as a top target.

Scannell is well down the pecking order at Huddersfield and spent the first half of last season on loan at Championship side Burton Albion.

The 27-year-old made 20 appearances for Burton before the move was cut short in January due to injury and Scannell returned to Huddersfield.

Scannell does not figure in Huddersfield boss David Wagner's plans going forward in the Premier League next season and they are willing to let him move on.

A number of clubs have shown an interest in signing Scannell, but Bradford are hoping to lure the skilful attacker to make the move to Valley Parade.

Bradford have been busy in the transfer market of late and landing Scannell would be something of a coup for new Bantams boss Michael Collins.

Scannell joined Huddersfield for £900,000 from Crystal Palace in June 2012 and has made 171 appearances, including 69 as a substitute.
