Bradford City have taken Derby County's Lee Holmes and Nathan Doyle on loan.
Bradford City have agreed to take the Derby County duo of Lee Holmes and Nathan Doyle on loan.
The pair join Colin Todd's side for a three-month loan spell ahead Saturday's opening game of the season at Nottingham Forest.
Left-sided winger Holmes, 19, spent time on loan with League Two side Swindon Town two seasons ago, while fellow midfielder Doyle (pictured) finished last season on loan with Notts County.
Bantams boss Todd was pleased to finally bring some new faces into his small Valley Parade squad this summer.
"Lee Holmes will give us the natural left-sided wing play that we are looking for," Todd told the Telegraph & Argus.
"He's got great ability and played about 20 games for Derby last season, while when he was at Swindon on loan, he did extremely well against us.
"Holmes is the one we've been chasing for a while but Nathan Doyle's got some talent as well and played Championship football in the first team at Derby also."
