Gareth Whalley


Gareth Whalley

Signed by: Paul Jewell
From: Dario Gradi (Crewe)
Cost: 600,000

Jewell ended Bradford's long hunt for the talented Crewe midfielder when he signed Whalley in a 750,000 double swoop along with Ashley Westwood. Previously Chris Kamara had bid 1m on deadline day 1997. Gareth Whalley is a product of the famed Dario Gradi Crewe production line.

During the close season of 1997 Gareth went on a tour of Norway with Spurs but was rejected by manager Gerry Francis as too lightweight. Crewe have also fielded offers from Blackburn (Dec 1996: 800,000), Liverpool (Feb 1997: 1.5m) before City got him.

Gareth is an excellent creative midfielder with an eye for quality passes. He provides a creative spark that can unlock defences.
