Bradford have taken Steven Craig and Jamie McMaster on trial.

The two forwards are training with the West Yorkshire club with a view to landing permanent contracts.

Craig is currently with Aberdeen, but he is not in the plans of boss Jimmy Calderwood and has been allowed to try his luck at Bradford.

Former Leeds man McMaster is a free agent after departing Chesterfield, and he is now looking to win a move to Valley Parade.

One man staying at Bradford is midfielder Steven Schumacher.

The ex-Everton youngster has agreed a two-year contract with Colin Todd's side.

"At last I can concentrate on another good season," Schumacher said.

Bradford have also secured a work-permit for Jamaican defender Damion Stewart, who is now free to begin is Bantams career.

Meanwhile, Todd has admitted an interest in Sheffield United's former Bradford starlet Simon Francis.

The Blades paid City £200,000 for Francis in March 2004, but he has failed to make the expected impact - starting just six league games.

Todd now admits he is interested in taking him on loan, but injury may scupper the move.

"I spoke to the manager concerned and the player is away with the squad. He played a game and did his groin," said Todd.

"I don't know whether the manager wants him to come but the longer it goes on, the less confident I feel." 1
