Stop it, rumor mill: Bradford City is not chasing New York Red Bulls' Junior Flemmings

This rumor is stopped before it even really got started.

How do rumors get started? Websites with names like "Football Rumours" exist in large part to get the rumor mill turning. Once A Metro was alerted to the sound of a whispering campaign getting underway by @commando_craig.

Junior Flemmings on Bradford City's radar for a loan to March (when NYRB II, the USL team he is currently contracted to, will kick into gear) is the careless whisper Football Rumours is floating.

We do indeed have thoughts. Thoughts like, "Why on earth would Bradford City want to loan a player for two months?" Thoughts like what agent is this that is attributing this confection to? Thoughts like...Before OaM could get too carried away with this one, Flemmings' representatives Global Premier Management intervened decisively: "not true".

And that is the end of that.

Last time we heard from Flemmings, he was telling the Jamaica Gleaner he was looking forward to using the New York Red Bulls' preseason training to challenge for a first-team roster spot. And OaM is looking forward to  watching the 21-year-old Jamaican make his mark - as a Red Bull. Back off, rumor mill.
