Gaskell keeping options open

Lee Gaskell has admitted that he is keeping his options open with his contract with Bradford Bulls expiring at the end of the season.

Gaskell signed for the Bulls in 2014, and has been a mainstay in the Bradford side since his arrival from St Helens two years ago. 

The 25 year-old is out-of-contract at the end of this season, and has been attracting the interest of the likes of Super League side Hull FC and Championship leaders Leigh Centurions in recent times.

Despite the interest, Gaskell has said that he is open to extending his stay at Odsal, but playing in Super League remains his target in the future. 

“I want to get it sorted as soon as possible, to be honest,” Gaskell told The Telegraph and Argus.

“There are obviously a few things that have gone on off the gield which have kept people on their toes. I’m sure the new coach will be appointed shortly so that the club and the players know where everyone is at.

“Will I have other options? Possible, because from May 1 players can talk to other clubs. Obviously I want to play in Super League and I’d be lying if I said otherwise.

“But I’m happy here and enjoying myself, so there is no reason why I wouldn’t stay. Bradford have always been good to me, so there is no reason why I would think any differently now. 

“It’s a good club and there are still Super League-quality players here in Adrian Purtell, Kris Welham, Adam Sidlow, Paul Clough and Adam O’Brien, who has just signed a new deal.”
