Bradford would not welcome Millwall interest in Hanson

BRADFORD boss Phil Parkinson wants to keep hold of James Hanson this month.

Millwall were interested in the striker last summer and used Saturday's FA Cup tie between the two clubs as an opportunity to run the rule over the 27-year-old.

It's understood the League One club would want at least £500,000 if they were to sell Hanson during the transfer window.

But Parkinson said: "Obviously we'd look to keep him – he's on a three-year contract with us – and I feel he's an underrated player, I really do.

"James is a very good player. When you're a big man, people pigeon-hole you as just a big man but he's got great ability as well.

"He can hold the ball up, his movement's good and he's a very honest player for the team. He's got no ego about himself and a great work ethic for the side."

    The price reflects his younger age, gotta be a better option than a player 30+ on high wages

    I'd take Hanson anyday over the likes of Church, Varney or the Hoff. The latter are just carthorses who won't do anything for us other than take us down. JB said he'd spend. Lets see.

      @NICKOLA: Totally agree, Hanson is a player who is the right age and apparently offers what we need already, he could still develop his game and be a great player for us.

    Do we want to be playing 19th century football? Hanson looked like what he is - a lower league bruiser with no pace, no touch and no guile. OK, he could head the ball. Big deal. We could only be interested in this lump if we are preparing for L1 next season.

      @Glasshalffull: at last, someone who see's Hanson the same as me. We have a defence that leaks like a sieve and he couldn't score against us. Move on, next target

      @Glasshalffull: That's exactly what I thought on Saturday. Wasn't impressed at all. Yes, I know it was his shot that deflected off Dunne, hit the cross bar and went in off the unfortunate Nelson but he can't rely on flooky goals all the time. A big bloke that didn't do much against our dodgy defence.

    I see holloway is looking to do a similar deal with Wimbledon that he done with Wycombe . He's lining up a deal to let goodman stay with them and we will take AKINFENWA for the rest of the season.

    Question really is does Hanson potentially offer enough to keep us up & for me the answer is no.

    Half a mill?!?!?! no chance - he might be 27 and he might have a 3 year contract but for me the guy is very average! Cue the dislike button but at that price I'd take the Hoff over him!

          Hello jim
          He won the header that led to the first goal,and hit the bar that led to sid's own goal ,if we did sign him 2 assist's in every game would do me.

    Sound's to me as if the Bradford manager is try to promote a sale saying all those good thing's about Hanson.
    I would just say "He is not for sale"

      @vonhardshaft
      Either one would do me,the thing to remember about big target men is,they may not be prolific scorer's them self ,but they make space and goal's for other's.
      Hanson was directly involved in 2 against us,would i pay 500.000?----50/50 about that.
      The hoff did the same last year for us,i honestly cannot understand how some poster on here have underestimated the part hof played in keeping us up last year.
      The 2 goal's against middboro.
      The way he took 2 defender's leaving space for wooly to head the winner against bournmouth.
      Those six point's were enough IMO to justify his signing
      One thing i would like to point out ,is KJ got lot's of gushing compliment's for putting IH forward for the manager's job,but no body gave a hint of a thank's to big mick mc carthy for suggesting to IH that carlos and hof could do a job for us and IMO they both played a massive part in keeping us up.
      A bit late i know but "THANK'S MICK).

        @jim1222: I agree...we need a tall target man to get the best out of Gregory...I have a few doubts over Hoff, I cannot fault his passion or commitment. I only worry over his fitness and his mental state...will he be looking at us as a stepping stone to further his career or will he say 'right, cannot reach the premiership, shall I settle for Championship?' His age is another factor...32 maybe 1 season left in him?

    I would take either, both would be handful for defenders giving them something physical to deal with, at the moment we are to predictable in the final third!

    Either would be better than church who chose the annaraks over us & varney who's only rise to fame was on the buses.

    Signing Church & Varney would be a mistake, they are someone else's rejects and lets face it if Church can't get into Charlton's starting side then he must be pretty poor at this level.
