CITY have left it up to Luca Colville to decide if he wants to sign for another season.

A one-year deal for the young midfielder remains on the table.

But Colville is yet to indicate whether he is prepared to commit himself to staying at the club.

Gary Bowyer has made it clear that he wants Colville to be part of his squad for the League Two campaign – but admits it is up to the youngster, who turns 20 next week.

“The ball is firmly in his court,” said the City boss.

“The contract offer was made and I spoke to him on Friday about it.

“I think he is going through all the agents in the world of football.

“He’s speaking to them all and deciding which one he wants to go with. It’s up to him what he does.”

Colville signed for City last August after impressing then-boss Michael Collins while on trial in pre-season. He later scored the same day in the Carabao Cup defeat at Macclesfield.

A knee ligament injury saw him miss a chunk of the season and he eventually made four starts with 10 further appearances coming off the bench.

Colville featured just twice under Bowyer as a sub in the final two games against Scunthorpe and Wimbledon.

Bowyer sees him as a useful squad player and he was offered a new deal in May along with Danny Devine and Jermaine Anderson, who both signed up for more.

Colville continues to train with the Bantams as normal and played 45 minutes in the opening friendly against Guiseley last weekend. But he is still to make up his mind.

Bowyer added: “We’ve made our intentions clear that obviously we wanted to keep him because we made the initial offer.

“Hopefully he will sign but there’s no cut-off point for me at this moment in time.

“But obviously the closer it gets to the start of the season, it then becomes an issue with the registration with the Football League and all those details.

“He knows what we think but it’s up to him what he does.”

City are now building up to Sunday’s Valley Parade date with European champions Liverpool. Midfielder Anderson admits it will be a game that everyone wants to be involved in.

“The crowd is going to be crazy,” he said. “When 24,000 fans come to Valley Parade you know it’s going to be rocking.

“They really get behind us and we know it’s going to be a lively atmosphere.

“It will be a good test and we’ll enjoy it. Hopefully we can also implement the stuff we’ve been learning in pre-season.

“It’s another step up for us as our journey through pre-season carries on."
