Bradford winger Jamie Foster says the club has given him assurances over his future despite him being sidelined for three months with a shoulder injury.
Foster, 22, signed a one-year deal with the Bulls at the start of the season, after signing from St Helens, and has gone on to score 84 points in 10 appearances.
But he suffered a ruptured pectoral muscle in Sunday’s Challenge Cup win at Rochdale.
He told the Bradford Telegraph and Argus said: “Franny (Francis Cummins) rang me to say that being out injured for so long wouldn’t affect anything in terms of contract negotiations for next year.
“There have been some preliminary discussions and I’d like to stay at Bradford because I’ve loved it here.
“There are a lot of honest people at the club and I’ve been very well looked after by people who want the best for me. Bradford are backing me all the way and I really appreciate that. It’s a great feeling to be wanted.”
