League One side Bradford have signed Newcastle midfielder Alex Gilliead on loan until the end of the season.

Gilliead recently returned to Newcastle from a loan spell at League Two club Luton, where he scored two goals in 21 games in all competitions.

The 20-year-old, who has yet to make a first-team appearance for the Magpies, spent last season on loan at Carlisle.

He is Bradford's second signing of the transfer window, following the arrival of Birmingham striker Alex Jones.
