Burnley X-Files: Hines Released at Bradford

Burnley X-Files: Hines Released at Bradford

Bradford City, newly promoted to League One last season have decided not to offer former West Ham and Burnley winger Zavon Hines a new contract.

The 24 year old scored just two goals in 41 appearances for the Bantams. In 15 of those games he came on from the bench.

Bradford manager Phil Parkinson said Hines needed to join a club where he was likely to play more regularly. It looks like an all too familiar story for the England Under 21 international. Hines has struggled to make an impresssion at any club since leaving West Ham and his time at Turf Moor was disappointing to say the least.

He joined Burnley from West Ham in August 2011 on a two-year contract with a tribunal deciding a fee of about £250,000. Hines came to the club with high expectations but it never really worked out for him and he managed just 16 league and cup appearances for the Clarets mainly coming on from the bench. He joined Bournemouth in March 2012 on loan until the end of the 2011-12 season to gain more playing time. However at the end of that season Burnley decided not to take up the option of a second year on Hines' contract and he was released signing for Bradford in August 2012.
