Bradford City are confident of signing Blackpool goalkeeper Colin Doyle after triggering his release clause of £1.

The 31-year-old is club captain and was one of Blackpool's best performers in League One last season as the club suffered consecutive relegations.

Doyle will have a medical early next week and will join midfielder Nicky Law and defender Nathaniel Knight-Percival as summer recruits at Valley Parade.

Bradford ended 2015-16 in fifth and meet Port Vale at home on 6 August.

Doyle's release clause is thought to have been put in place to ensure the ex-Birmingham goalkeeper had options in the event Blackpool were relegated.

Should he complete the move, he looks likely to become the Bantams' number one after Ben Williams - who made 45 league appearances last season - joined Bury.
