BRAD­FORD man­ager Phil Parkin­son has re­vealed Filipe Mo­rais re­jected of­fers from else­where to prove him­self at the Ban­tams.

The 28-year-old was freed by Steve­nage in the sum­mer and ini­tially signed a short­term deal at Val­ley Pa­rade.

But the Por­tuguese winger, who started out in Eng­land with Chelsea and has also had spells with Mill­wall, Hiber­nian, In­ver­ness, St Johnstone and Old­ham, has landed a deal un­til Jan­uary.

“I like him as a player and as a per­son,” said Parkin­son. “I think he has made a good con­tri­bu­tion to the sea­son so far and he has de­cided to stay with us un­til Jan­uary.

“I was par­tic­u­larly im­pressed with his per­for­mance away at Craw­ley – I thought he was ex­cel­lent.

“He had of­fers to go else­where on longer con­tracts, but was keen to stay here and keep prov­ing him­self.

“He has played a lot of games at this level and gives us another at­tack­ing op­tion.

“He can play as an outand-out wide player, in be­hind the strik­ers or as one of three cen­tral mid­field­ers if we stick with that.”
