GOALKEEPER Jon McLaughlin looks set to become a Burton Albion player after all-but confirming his move from Bradford City.

The 26-year-old stopper could not agree new terms at Valley Parade, and ex-Brewer Jordan Pickford has joined the Bantams on loan from Sunderland.

He told the Yorkshire Post today: "I am now looking forward to life at Burton and seeing how far we can kick on.

“There have been opportunities at clubs in other divisions, but a concrete offer from a club like Burton doesn’t feel like a drop down in division or class.

"They have been a team who in the past two years have been unlucky not to reach League One.”

On McLaughlin’s exit, Bradford manager Phil Parkinson said: “Jon has been a great servant to the club and we would have ideally liked to see him stay.

“But financial constraints mean it hasn’t been possible to strike a deal that is right for both parties.”
