A League One club has just bought an international goalkeeper for a pound


We're not sure Colin Doyle is going to live this down, but the goalkeeper has been bought for £1 by League One club Bradford.

Apparently Doyle, who is a Republic of Ireland international, had a £1 release clause in his Blackpool contract which City *triggered* with what was effectively a gold-coin donation.

Almost certainly it means that Doyle, who has signed a two-year deal, is set for a long season getting ribbed by away fans about the fact he costs about the same as a loaf of bread.

In fact, it's already started.

It went on...

Needless to say Blackpool fans - who have seen their club slide down the Football League in recent seasons - were not happy to see their captain and first-choice goalie sold so cheap.

It's at times like this you need a snse of humour.
