Middlesbrough striker Rumarn Burrell has signed for Bradford City on loan until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old joins the League Two side after just one substitute appearance for Boro in the FA Cup since moving from Grimsby in 2019.

He played four games as a substitute for the Mariners in League Two at the end of the 2018-19 season but has yet to start a senior match.

Burrell has four goals in 11 games for Boro's Under 23's this season.

"I have a lot of experience in the Under 23's but am desperate to play first-team football and be a part of Bradford City, so feel I have made the right decision," Burrell told the Bantams website.

"This is my first loan move and will be a challenge, but I feel ready and am looking forward to hopefully scoring some goals."

Meanwhile, Bradford defender Finn Cousin-Dawson has signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal.

The 18-year-old has made 12 appearances this season after his debut against Doncaster in the Papa John's Trophy in September.

"I was desperate to get it done and make sure I stay at the club for a lot longer," he told the club website.external-link

"It shows all young players coming through our academy now that there is a pathway at the football club."
