McCall could leave Bradford City

Stuart McCall may be forced out of Valley Parade after confirming City have slashed his wages by almost 60 per cent in offering him a new deal.
The influential skipper is out of contract this summer and was expected to pen a new deal with The Bantams, but after talks with the club, McCall has said he is 'disappointed' by the terms of City's offer.
The 36-year-old, who has continually expressed his desire to see out his playing days with his beloved City, told Bradford's Telegraph & Argus: "When I spoke to Jim Jefferies I realised the club have got to be looking to make cuts.
"I accepted that when I went in to see him, but I was a little bit stunned with the offer which is almost 60 per cent less than I earn at the moment."
McCall, who rejoined The Bantams from Rangers in 1998, added: "I know that things are tight at the club and I knew I would have to take a drop, but I am disappointed at the offer. I am still a bit stunned at the moment."
Geoffrey Richmond has reportedly given Jefferies a £5million wage budget for life in Division One. But, with Robert Molenaar and Eoin Jess both expected to also agree new deals and big- earner Beni Carbone still in contract, money is clearly tight at Valley Parade.
Whether McCall is prepared to accept City's cost-cutting offer remains to be seen. He is currently thinking over the terms of the new deal.
