Former Walsall winger Zeli Ismail has joined signed up with League Two rivals Bradford City.

Zeli Ismail.

Ismail was one of 11 players let go last month by new Saddlers boss Darrell Clarke following the club’s relegation from League One.

And the 25-year-old has now agreed terms with the Bantams, who were also demoted from the third tier last term.

Ismail, who began his career at Wolves, will officially become a Bradford player next month when his Walsall contract expires.

He joined the Saddlers last summer on a one-year contract, having made 20 appearances while on loan from Bury.

Ismail went on to make a further 32 League One appearances in a season which ended with Walsall 22nd in the table, two places above the rock bottom Bantams.
