Utility Man

While he is predominantly a midfielder, the 23-year-old can also operate in defence.

Sutton began his career with fellow League Two side Scunthorpe United, from whom he joins from.

He made his debut for the Lincolshire based side in a 6-0 win over Swindon Town towards the end of the 2015/16 season.

The highly-rated midfielder continued to ease his way into the first-team at Glanford Park, and his chance came in the 2018/19 season following two loan spells. Sutton made 19 appearances for the Iron, registering his first goal for the Club in the process.

Last season saw him become an established first-team member in Russ Wilcox side. He made 19 appearances in all competitions, as Scunthorpe finished 21st in League Two.

What Was Said

Speaking to the official Bradford City website about his move, Levi Sutton said:  “I am delighted to be here. I am looking forward to hopefully being a part of a successful team, which I feel we will be.

“This is a massive club which should not be in League Two.

“I will give 110% while here and cannot wait to hopefully be playing soon, in front of all our supporters.”

Meanwhile, Stuart McCall, who managed Sutton during his time at Glanford Park, said: “I worked with Levi at Scunthorpe and was really surprised when I saw he had been released. I know they had made him an offer, prior to COVID-19.

“He is a whole-hearted and totally committed lad with a real desire to be a footballer, which we want.

“There is a little edge to him and I know he will give everything he has got, as well as being able to play in a number of positions.”
