BRADFORD City have re-signed local midfielder Danny Devine on a one-year deal.

The deal will keep the 21-year-old at City until at least the end of next season.

Devine made six appearances for the Bantams during the last campaign, as his season was riddled with injuries.

Three of those came in the league, with two coming in the FA Cup and then a full 90 minutes in the League Cup.

The Bradford-born player made his first start in a City shirt for over two years against Scunthorpe in the penultimate game of the season.

Devine said: "I am delighted to have signed for another year. As soon as I found out about the extension it was a no-brainer.

"Last season did not really go to plan, for me. I picked up a few injuries which did not help.

"It is only a one-year extension, so I am looking forward to working hard and showing Gary (Bowyer) what I can do.

"The fans always like to see homegrown players coming through the academy.

"I always get messages wishing me well when I play. They always want me to kick on because I am from Bradford.

"Hopefully, I can play a big part next season and help us to get promoted."

Two other out-of-contract players have been offered new deals, but Devine is the first of three to put pen to paper.

Bowyer said: "Danny has shown he has the ability to play a big part next season.

"It was important, with him being a local lad, to get him signed early on.

"I am looking forward to seeing him continue improving as a player and establishing himself in the first team."
