Bantams loanee aims to impress

Next Story

Bradford City loanee Jamie Devitt is hoping to build on his impressive debut at Morecambe and make a telling impact for the club in the coming months.

The 21-year-old is in his fourth spell away from parent club Hull City, having previously spent time with Darlington, Shrewsbury Town and Grimsby Town in the past two seasons, and admits he's now comfortable with settling in quickly at different places.

“I’m sort of used to it now. I’ve been on loan at three other clubs, so I know how it works," said the Irishman.

“The first day you sit back and try to get to know the other lads a bit but then you settle into it. To be honest, it just feels like being at your own club.”

Devitt admits that leaving the Tigers once again wasn't a particularly tough choice, as the youngster is just desperate to continue playing first team football.


However, he hasn't given up on forcing his way into Nigel Pearson's side at the KC Stadium in the future, and more impressive displays at Valley Parade will only help the winger's cause in the future.

“I just want to play football like everyone else. I’ve been knocking on the manager’s door at Hull for the chance to do that, whether it’s there or somewhere else. I’m thankful to Bradford for giving me the opportunity to be out there again and now I want to repay them," he continued.

“Hull told me to go out, have some games and enjoy yourself. Then hopefully I’ll return to the club fully match fit and see if I can get into their team.

“I definitely feel I’m still in the plans there. I don’t think they’d want me to go out and play games if it wasn’t to come back later on and benefit the team in some way.

“We’ll see what happens up until Christmas and where it goes from there. I just need matches because I haven’t played since pre-season, so I want to be involved regularly.”
