Bradford City sign 18-year-old midfielder Patrick Lacey
Bradford City have signed former Sheffield Wednesday central midfielder Patrick Lacey.
The 18-year-old, who came through the ranks at Hillsborough, was released by the Owls in the summer and has signed a one-year-deal at Valley Parade.
Bradford manager Peter Jackson told the club website: "I've always said that we've needed a younger side.
"My coaching staff and I think Sheffield Wednesday have made a bit of a mistake letting him go."
Jackson continued: "He had offers to come to other clubs, but he was with us for a few days last season and seemed to enjoy it, and I think that swayed it in our favour.
"He's come back here for pre-season with the rest of the lads this summer and we still like what he is offering as a player."
As with Bradford's other recent teenage signing Scott Brown, Lacey is expected to go into the development squad, but is eligible to play in the first team.
