AFC Fylde moved to sign highly-rated young defender Tyler French on-loan from Bradford City for the rest of the season.


French, 21, made 120 appearances for AFC Sudbury in the Isthmian League, and attracted interest from plenty of Football League suitors.

He opted to sign for the Bantams last summer on a two year deal, but has found opportunities limited, and has spoken of his desire to get back to playing football.

“Due to not playing many game this year I’ve come here, which is a great opportunity for me,” French said.

“The main thing is coming here playing football, helping the team and getting us as high up the table as we can be.”

“My main position is centre-back, but I can play anywhere across the back. I’m quick and aggressive, they’re my two main attributes, but I’m comfortable on the ball too.”
