Bradford City look set to add Wrexham striker Lee McEvilly to their line-up for the coming season.

The 24-year-old Northern Ireland international had a medical on Monday before completing his switch to Valley Parade.

The aggressive target man has scored goals right through the leagues since moving to Rochdale in 2001, where he earned the nickname 'Evil', scoring 16 goals in his first season.

He scored 17 goals from 39 starts at Accrington Stanley in The Conference before moving to The Racecourse Ground for £30,000 in 2005.

The bustling forward hit seven goals in an injury-hit League Two season, which saw him start just 15 games, and attracted Bantams boss Colin Todd's attentions.

He will bolster the League One outfit's attack alongside former Manchester United youngster Eddie Johnson, as they prepare for pre-season training on Thursday.
