Ex-Ireland goalkeeper Colin Doyle has made the move from Blackpool to Bradford City.

And the transfer only cost the League One club £1.

The 31-year-old, who won one Ireland cap in 2007, had a release clause of a single pound in his contract which Bradford were able to meet - presumably after collecting 100 1p coins.

The Cork man had previously spent the bulk of his career at Birmingham City with the exception of loan spells elsewhere.
