Bradford boss Peter Jackson has snapped up Scottish duo Mark Stewart and Chris Mitchell and is close to landing another "top" target.

Former Falkirk striker Stewart, 22, has signed a two-year deal and former Scotland Under-21s international Mitchell has penned a one-year deal with the option to extend it.

Stewart has been pursued by a host of clubs, including Scunthorpe, after he top-scored in the Scottish First Division last season with 17 goals.

Meanwhile, Mitchell is a versatile player who can operate across the back four as well as in a defensive midfield role.

Jackson told the Telegraph and Argus: "It's a big move for them and they are both really looking forward to the challenge. Like Ross Hannah and Guy Branston, they are excited about coming here and want to do well."

Jackson is also closing in on a new midfielder with chief scout Archie Christie in talks with the unnamed player.
