Adam Drury has joined the exodus of loanees from Elland Road by moving to Bradford City for a month.

The experienced left-back joined Bradford on a 28-day deal on March 7, edging him closer towards the end of his career at Leeds United.

Drury, who was signed by Leeds on a free transfer from Norwich City in 2012, is in the final stages of a two-year contract and is expected to move on from Elland Road in the summer.

The 35-year-old has been a bit-part player throughout his spell with United, appearing 15 times last season and just three times during the current term.

“He hasn’t played much this season and he needs to be playing games,” said manager Brian McDermott.

Drury’s departure follows Paul Green’s loan to Ipswich Town and Luke Varney’s switch to Blackburn Rovers. Like Drury, both Green and Varney are out of contract at the end of this season.

Leeds have a large number of senior players on their books and prospective new owner Massimo Cellino is understood to be looking to maintain a smaller squad next season.
