Some Eleventh hour wrangling seems to have been enough to secure Benito Carbone for Bradford this morning.

Some Eleventh hour wrangling seems to have been enough to secure Benito Carbone for Bradford this morning.

Talks to bring the controversial Italian to Valley Parade appeared to a impasse in the early hours of last night but Carbone's advisors appeared to have a change of heart this morning.

A press conference has been called for 5pm.

The former Sheffield Wednesday forward, who failed to secure a long-term contract with Aston Villa after finishing last season on loan at Villa Park, became a Bradford target after Manchester City pipped their Premiership rivals for Paulo Wanchope.

Bradford's managing director Shaun Harvey said: "Talks between Bradford and Benito Carbone broke down at two o'clock this morning. But Mr Carbone's advisors rang back at 4am asking us if we could reconvene at 9am this morning."
