Bradford fight off rivals to keep Gale

Half-back Luke Gale is to remain at Bradford after signing a new two-year contract extension.

Gale, 26, had been heavily linked to Hull over the past few days, but the Bulls have moved to end speculation and he follows Adam Sidlow in penning a new deal.

He said: “The club have been very supportive of me and I wanted to return the faith they have had in me. They’ve been loyal to me and now I want to show my loyalty to them. I’m delighted and excited to have extended my contract.

“The board of directors that are in now place and Francis are great and will take this club forward. We can put the uncertainty aside and be excited for the first game of the season.

“We’ve got to take every game as it comes but we have a good squad here and we are looking forward to getting the season started.”

Vultures have seemingly been circling around Odsal over the past few weeks, after the club’s former parent company OK Bulls Ltd entered administration.

Prop Garreth Carvell, signed from Warrington in the off-season, has also been heavily linked with a move to Hull, who made public their interest which prompted a hands-off warning from the Bulls.
