Bradford City boss: No contact with Dons over striker

BY RICHARD CAWLEY

Bradford City manager Gary Bowyer has played down talk he could be interested in a Valley Parade return for AFC Wimbledon striker James Hanson.

The 31-year-old striker moved to the Dons last summer from Sheffield United.

Hanson spent eight seasons with Bradford before his one season stay with the Blades.

But Bowyer, talking to the Telegraph & Argus, said: “We could certainly do with a big type up there. It was obvious last year when we were asking Doyler (Eoin Doyle) to be the big target man.

“I think the old-fashioned centre forward is becoming a bit of a rare breed. You used to be able to rattle off the names but that doesn’t seem to be the case now.

“But we’ve not had any conversations regarding James Hanson. He’s a Wimbledon player and contracted to them. That’s where that one is.”
