The Bantams have been tracking McLean for a while, but the former Peterborough frontman put pen to paper on a permanent contract on Wednesday evening before being unveiled on Thursday morning.

The 30-year-old will go straight into City's squad for their Yorkshire derby at Sheffield United on Saturday, subject to the relevant paperwork being processed.

Bradford boss Phil Parkinson told the club's website: "I'm thrilled by the arrival of Aaron.

"He is someone I have monitored for a while now and he has a proven record at this level.

"Aaron is a fantastic player and he will be a great personality to have around the dressing room.

"I am sure he is going to be an excellent acquisition for the football club."

McLean, who has over 120 career goals, has been on loan at Championship outfit Birmingham this season and recently scored for Hull in their FA Cup win at Middlesbrough.
