But he is highly rated at St. James’ Park and captains their top reserve side that competes in the Premiership Reserve League and he led that side in a 0-0 home draw on Monday of this week against Everton played at Whitley Park, Benton.
He has made fifteen appearances for the reserves, scoring twice with the goals coming against Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland. He is a big strong player noted for his tackling and passing of the ball and although he doesn’t score many goals he does pack a powerful shot.
The deal that brings him to the Turf is initially for one month but can be extended to three months. He chose Burnley ahead of Rotherham with the Millers keen to sign him.
He will go straight into the squad for the trip to Wigan on Saturday and it remains to be seen whether he starts or is named as one of the substitutes.
Bradley is the fifth player to join the Clarets on a short term loan this season and we would like to welcome him to Turf Moor.
