“After conversations with the owners I have decided to turn down the option to extend my contract,” Grayson said.

“This was an extremely difficult decision as I have enjoyed my time at Valley Parade.

“I would like to thank everyone at Bradford City, from the owners to the supporters, who have turned out in their numbers both home and away since I have been manager of their club.

“I wish the club all the best for the future.”
