Jansson: Will go back to Spurs
Bradford have allowed goalkeeper Oscar Jansson to return to Tottenham before his deal expires after the arrival of Matt Duke.
The 20-year-old linked up with Bradford on a one-month loan during the first week of the season and his shoot-out heroics helped the club defeat Yorkshire rivals Sheffield Wednesday in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
But the signing of Duke, who has Premier League experience from his seven years with Hull, meant the Bantams could not justify keeping Jansson at Valley Parade.
Manager Phil Parkinson told the club's official website: "I'd firstly like to thank Oscar for all his efforts during his time here.
In the short period I've been at the club, he has been no problem at all and always trained in a professional manner.
"Unfortunately for Oscar, though, we cannot sustain three goalkeepers on our books at the moment with Dukey [Matt Duke] and Jon [McLaughlin] here as well.
"I am sure fans will remember Oscar fondly, especially thanks his penalty saves in the Sheffield Wednesday match."
