Bradford City are in loan talks with Preston North End striker Dave Hibbert.
Bradford City are in talks with Preston North End striker Dave Hibbert regarding a loan move to the League One club.
Hibbert, who will be 21 later this month, looks set to return to Yorkshire with The Bantams, having spent the first part of this season on loan with League One rivals Rotherham United.
Bantams boss Colin Todd is hopeful the initial four-week loan can be extended for the remainder of the campaign, as he looks to boost the Bradford attack with the former Port Vale hit-man.
"Hibbert is one I tried to get in earlier on and I would be very disappointed if we can't agree something this time," Todd told the Bradford Telegraph & Argus.
"He has been at Rotherham on loan and done quite well and I have had glowing reports from Billy Davies, who took him to Preston.
"He is brave and with his height, we are look for him to lead the line, bring people into play and chip in with a few goals as well."
Meanwhile, Bradford have agreed a new stadium sponsorship deal with local telecommunications company Intersonic.
The close to £1million deal will see Valley Parade renamed as The Intersonic Stadium until June 2009, with the company moving their offices to the ground in a separate five-year deal.
