Bradford City are eying a move for Portsmouth goalkeeper Luke McGee according to journalist Alan Nixon.
Nixon is often a reliable source of credible transfer information, and he’s tweeted the news this morning, suggesting a potential loan move for the twenty-four-year-old.
Bradford City. In for Luke McGee. Portsmouth keeper. Loan.

McGee arrived at Portsmouth from Peterborough in 2017 and made forty-four League One appearances in 2017/18. He’s since slipped to third-choice keeper at Fratton Park and appears to have no future under boss Kenny Jackett, with his three-year contract expiring at the end of the campaign.
The arrival of Craig MacGillivray and the progress of highly-regarded twenty-one-year-old Alex Bass has hampered his first-team opportunities, and he’s been available for a transfer since the summer.
Indeed, he was close to joining the Bantams League Two promotion rivals Cheltenham Town last week, but the deal reportedly collapsed after the two clubs failed to reach an agreement over wage contributions.
The former Spurs trainee is thought to be desperate for regular football after not featuring at all for Pompey this season.
McGee needs to get his career back on track, and he could be an excellent signing for Bradford City.
He’s got an excellent pedigree, and League One experience before his career faltered in recent years.
Richard O’Donnell has been in fine form for Gary Bowyer’s men, but cover and competition is needed for the run-in which all Bantams fans will be hoping ends in an immediate return to League One.
