BRISTOL CITY manager Danny Wilson is chasing Bradford City's 37-year-old defender John Dreyer as the Ashton Gate boss looks to strengthen his new squad for next season.

The former Stoke and Luton centre-half, who started his professional career at Oxford in 1985, is available on a free transfer after rejecting a one-year offer from new Bradford boss Chris Hutchings.

Wilson has enquired about the player, who scored a key winning goal in Bradford's campaign to stay in the Premiership at Sunderland last season.

Dreyer has also gained the interest of relegated Walsall, who are believed to want him a player-coach at the Bescot Stadium.

If Wilson is successful in bringing Dreyer to the West Country, he could form a veteran central defensive partnership with 33-year-old Keith Millen.

The duo's experience could help City's young quartet of promising defenders-Louis Carey, Andrew Jordan, Joe Burnell, and Matt Hill.

Meanwhile, The new Red Robins boss has denied speculation that links him with a move for Grimsby Town's right-back Danny Butterfield.
