PETER TAYLOR has swapped silk for steel in his bid to ease Bradford City’s relegation fears.
The Bantams boss has swooped to sign a familiar face in veteran midfielder Kevin Ellison for the third time in his career.
Ellison, 31, who played under Taylor at Leicester City and Hull City, has signed on loan for the rest of the season from League Two high-fliers Rotherham, with mercurial Jamaican winger Omar Daley heading the other way in an indentical deal.
Taylor, whose faltering side have lost five of their past six league games to hurtle down the table at a rate of knots, said: “I know how exciting at times Omar can be, but I know Kevin really well and he can play a couple of positions.
“He’s left-footed and wants to cross the ball and can score a goal.”
