Bradford City are poised to sign former Blackpool defender Kelvin Mellor on a free transfer, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.
Mellor is a free agent after his contract with Blackpool expired at the end of June and a number of clubs have been chasing his signature.
However, Bradford have moved to offer the defender a deal at Valley Parade to become the latest new signing for Michael Collins' side.
Mellor will help fill the void left at Bradford by Tony McMahon's departure to Oxford earlier this season.
Mellor has impressed at Blackpool since joining the club on a free transfer from Plymouth Argyle in the summer of 2016.
The attacking full-back helped Blackpool win promotion to League One in his first year at the club and was named in the PFA League Two team of the year.
Mellor continued his fine form last season chipping in with seven goals in 34 games for Blackpool to establish himself as one of the best right-backs in the Football League.
