Leeds United let Romario Vieira leave the Championship club alongside twin brother Ronaldo, but is a move to League One Bradford on the cards?

Both the Vieira brothers bid farewell to Elland Road this summer, albeit in very different circumstances.

Ronaldo (above) earned Leeds United a hefty £7 million when he left for Serie A side Sampdoria; a very impressive fee for a player who had risen through the ranks in West Yorkshire only to fall down the pecking order once Garry Monk left the club in 2017.

Twin brother Romario, however, did not depart to the same fanfare. The one-time Guinea Bissau international failed to make a single first-team appearance in Leeds colours and, in May, it was announced that his contract would not be renewed.

 

Unlike Ronaldo, Romario has struggled to find a new club since, although it is interesting to note that he has recently undergone a trial at Leeds’ local rivals Bradford City.

That is according to the Yorkshire Evening Post, who claim the 20-year-old has remained in England with the rest of the Vieira family.

It remains to be seen whether Romario will be offered a contract by Bradford, who are stuck in the League One relegation zone after a difficult start to the campaign.

Romario had spent a similar spell at another Yorkshire club, Doncaster Rovers, but manager Grant McCann told the Free Press in August that they rejected the chance to offer him a contract, choosing to put their faith in the young players already in their ranks.
