FORMER Sheffield United and Barnsley right back Rob Kozluk looks set to sign for Bradford City until the end of the season.

Kozluk, aged 34, is available on a free transfer after leaving Port Vale last month. He played for the Bantams’ reserves in Tuesday’s victory over Scunthorpe.

He began his career at Derby and had an eight-year spell at Sheffield United before a free transfer in 2007 to Barnsley.

Kozluk returned to Bramall Lane for a short stay in 2010 before following former Blades manager Micky Adams to Port Vale last September.

Another former Blade, Nyron Nosworthy has seen his stay at Watford turn into a permanent move having agreed an undisclosed deal with Sunderland.

The centre-back, aged 31, made the final appearance of his loan stay at Vicarage Road in Saturday’s 4-2 FA Cup triumph over Bradford, making a total of 13 starts and proving a positive addition to manager Sean Dyche’s ranks after linking up with the Hornets in October.

Dyche has now swooped to bring Nosworthy to the Championship club on a two-and-a-half year deal.

League One Stevenage have completed the permanent signing of Luke Freeman from Arsenal for an undisclosed fee.

The 19-year-old striker has been on loan with Boro since November 2011.

Scunthorpe manager Alan Knill hopes to complete the signing of Watford midfielder Josh Walker this week.

The 22-year-old, who has captained England at every level up to the Under-20s, is currently on loan at Stevenage.

And Ipswich have agreed a deal with Leicester for Sean St Ledger and are now waiting for a decision from 27-year-old centre-back.
