DANNY Williams is hoping to extend his loan spell with the Bulls ahead of Friday's derby trip to Leeds.

The Salford winger has spent the past month with Bradford and is keen to join the club on a permanent basis.

But his current loan deal expired after Sunday's stunning win over defending champions Wigan, which saw Williams score his first try for Jimmy Lowes' side.

The 27-year-old wide man, a boyhood Rhinos fan who progressed through the ranks at Leeds, said: "I'm really enjoying my rugby here and I want to stay.

"Hopefully that will happen and it would be great to play in the Leeds-Bradford derby for the Bulls.

"I grew up in Leeds supporting the Rhinos and went on to play for them, so I know all about the Leeds-Bradford rivalry.

"I've played in this fixture a few times as a Leeds player and it would be good to go there as a Bradford player.

"It would be even better if we get the same result as against Wigan on Sunday. The middle men absolutely killed it and were really strong for us.

"I think the boys have always had it in them and it was nice to get our rewards."

Williams took a neat pass from Adam Henry to score the Bulls' first try against Shaun Wane's men, finishing with aplomb.

Lowes has already spoken of his desire to secure Williams' services on a permanent deal.

His contract with the Red Devils expires at the end of the season and he will become a free agent.

Williams said: "I'm enjoying it and if everything is good for both parties then hopefully I will be here next year.

"I need to sort out the loan first – stay here for the rest of the season and then we can look to sort out next year. I've loved my time here and am keen to stay."

Elliot Kear is set to continue at full back on Friday at Leeds, with Brett Kearney having suffered a bout of concussion after being knocked out against Wigan.
