Manager Darren Way has further strengthened his squad with the loan addition of Bradford City forward Omari Patrick on a deal until January.

The 22-year old steps down a tier from Sky Bet League One to join the Glovers for his first loan spell away from Valley Parade since joining last year.

Starting his career with local non-league outfit Beaconsfield SYCOB, Patrick recorded an impressive goal tally to lure the interest of Kidderminster Harriers where he signed his first professional contract in December 2015.

Following Kiddy's relegation at the end of the 2015/16 campaign he trialled for Barnsley Under-23s and after scoring against Ipswich Town, signed a one-year contract with the Tykes.

At 6'1" and able to operate either on the wing or as a striker, Patrick attracted the attention of the Bantams last summer where he initially signed a one-year deal. 

Scoring the winner on his debut and going on to notch a further two times in the first eight games of the 2017/18 season, the Slough-born attacker was awarded with a new three-year deal.

A knee injury disrupted his debut campaign in the EFL with Patrick now donning green and white, becoming eligible for Saturday's trip to Grimsby Town.

Pleased with his latest recruit, Way told YTFC.net: "Omari is a special talent, so I'm hoping he can bring that to Yeovil.

"He will have to carry all of our values and principles but if he does, I'm sure he'll be a success and go on to bigger and better things. 

"I look forward to working with Omari and welcome him to the club."
