Bradford City are 11th in League One

Former QPR chairman Gianni Paladini is in early talks to take over League One club Bradford City.

The Italian, who previously tried to buy Championship club Birmingham City, has signed a confidentiality agreement with Bantams joint-chairmen Julian Rhodes and Mark Lawn.

Paladini spent eight years at Loftus Road before leaving in November 2011.

Bradford, who reached the FA Cup quarter-finals this season, are 11th in League One after three straight losses.
