Bradford have completed the loan signing of Hull's teenage striker Mark Cullen, while defenders Richard Eckersley and Rob Kiernan have extended their deals.

Cullen, 18, who has made 18 first-team appearances for Hull this season after making his debut for the Tigers in the FA Cup defeat at Wigan last January, will stay at Valley Parade for an initial month.

Burnley left-back Eckersley will stay with Bradford until February 6 after arriving in mid-November and has made six appearances for Peter Taylor's side with Watford centre-half Kiernan remaining with the Bantams until January 22.

Taylor said: "I thought Rob was outstanding (against Bury) on Monday. That's the best he has played and we'd be mad to let him go."

Meanwhile, striker Jason Price has returned to Carlisle following the end of his three-month loan spell. The 33-year-old made 11 appearances for Taylor's side.
