CITY expect to be able to reveal if Mark Trueman and Conor Sellars will be staying at Valley Parade in the coming days.

The club remain hopeful of keeping the pair after they were removed from the managerial hot-seat at the end of the season.

Both have been offered new roles by the Bantams, who are optimistic that the pair will agree.

“Both are continuing to talk to us and I think we’ll have the solution that we can share during early June,” said chief executive Ryan Sparks.

“It remains our desire to keep them at the club and, in my view, the talks have been constructive and positive and they’ve both been made offers.

“I’m more than optimistic that they will accept.”

Trueman and Sellars were in charge for 30 games, winning 13 of them, after stepping up from the academy when Stuart McCall was sacked in December.

But having comfortably secured their initial aim of League Two survival, they paid the price for an awful end to the season when City picked up only one point in the last seven games.

Sparks added: “We’d like them to be in and around it. They won’t necessarily be with the first team directly but they’ll be in the building.

“We want them to take a step back, further develop and increase their already rapidly-expanded knowledge of what’s required at the top level.

“Unfortunately, the club has used people in the past and with these two, I made it very clear from the outset that they would be protected whatever happened.

“I would hope that they would agree that it’s very much been the case.

“They are both having a bit of a break right now and will be back at the club next month. Providing we get everything agreed, I think we’ll be in a position to announce what their futures will look like on a permanent level in the coming days.”
