LEWIS O'Brien has been rewarded with an improved contract with Huddersfield Town following an impressive season on loan with the Bantams.

O'Brien was one of the few positives in his debut campaign at senior level during City's relegation to League Two.

And having returned to his parent club, the 20-year-old has signed a deal that will run until the end of June 2022, with the club holding the option of an additional year’s extension.

The central midfielder has yet to make his competitive debut for Town but played 46 games in all competitions for the Bantams last season, scoring four goals.

He has been a regular in pre-season so far for Huddersfield - back in the Championship following relegation - impressing during games in Austria last week.

Town head coach Jan Siewert said: “I think that everyone has been able to see the benefits that his experiences at Bradford City last season have given him.

"He’s come back to us with his confidence high and he can fit into our squad with his level of performance, as we’ve seen in pre-season.

“He is still only 20, so he definitely has space to improve further. That’s an exciting thought, as we have already seen he can make an impact for us."
