A number of Bradford City fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the news that midfielder Chris Taylor has joined the Valley Parade side on a short-term contract.

The 32-year-old was a free agent after leaving Blackpool at the end of last season and has also played for Oldham, Millwall, Blackburn and Bolton over his career.

The move sees Taylor - who has penned a contract until January - reunited with Bradford manager Gary Bowyer, who he played under at both Blackburn and Blackpool.

 

According to the Telegraph & Argus, Taylor was with the Bantams in pre-season and featured in a couple of friendlies, including the home clash with Liverpool.

"Chris comes in at a good time for us, after injuries for Matty Palmer, Jamie Devitt and Jordan Gibson," Bowyer told the Bradford website.

"He gives us more options, as he can play anywhere in midfield and just off the front. Chris will bring a wealth of experience and provides great quality from set pieces."

Here is some of the social media reaction from the club's fanbase regarding the news:

Up next for Bradford is Saturday's League Two home clash with Crawley Town.

Manager of Blackpool Gary Bowyer looks on prior to the Emirates FA Cup First Round match between Boreham Wood and Blackpool on November 4, 2017 in Borehamwood, England.
