BLACK­POOL have re­vealed cap­tain Tony McMa­hon jumped ship last month and felt they had no choice but to let him join Brad­ford on loan.

The 29-year-old right­back had made 33 ap­pear­ances for the Tan­ger­ines this term, un­til com­plet­ing a sur­prise short­term switch to Val­ley Pa­rade.

And Black­pool as­sis­tant Alan Thomp­son said: “Tony came into us and asked to leave, that showed he wasn’t on board so we let him go.

“What can you do when your cap­tain is do­ing that? It’s un­usual to have your cap­tain ask­ing to leave but that’s Tony’s de­ci­sion.

“I as­sume he has one eye on earn­ing a deal at Brad­ford – his con­tract is up.”
