Former Dundalk winger Dylan Connolly has joined League Two side Bradford City on loan from League One AFC Wimbledon on a season-long loan.

The 24-year-old has previously played in England before with Ipswich Town – before returning home to the League of Ireland and joining Bray Wanderers.

After a stint at the Carlisle Grounds, Connolly joined Stephen Kenny at Dundalk, where he helped the Lilywhites to a double-winning season term last year.

After 18 months at Oriel Park, the Dubliner made the move to Wimbledon, where he helped them to a famous FA Cup win over West Ham United.

Speaking to his club’s media team, Bradford boss Gary Bowyer said: “Dylan is a very quick and exciting winger, who loves to take on defenders.

“He wanted to join us straight away - and it all happened very quickly.

“We have done well in recruiting players during this window and a big thanks has to go to Stefan Rupp and Julian Rhodes for their backing and support.”
