Sunderland defender John Egan joins Bradford City on loan

League Two side Bradford City have signed Sunderland defender John Egan on a two-month loan deal.

Egan, 20, has yet to make his debut for the Black Cats but had short loan spells with both Crystal Palace and Sheffield United last season.

The Irishman will bolster a Bantams defence depleted by long-term injuries to both Andrew Davies and Luke Oliver.

Boss Phil Parkinson told BBC Radio Leeds: "He's strong, he's committed and he'll be a good addition."

Egan played twice for Palace in January and once for the Blades in March - all three ending in defeats.
