James Donaldson has penned a new deal wiith the Bradford Bulls

Bradford have given a new 12-month contract to injury-hit Cumbrian back-row forward James Donaldson.

The 21-year-old Donaldson, who missed virtually the whole of the 2012 season after rupturing his knee cruciate ligament in the second match, was out of contact and is relieved to land a new deal.

"It's like starting all over again now," he said. "I've done my knee twice but this is a clean slate. My body is feeling good and I can't wait to get back in training and try and put things right again."

He continued: "There was a few other options but there was nowhere else I wanted to be because I love Bradford."

Bradford head coach Francis Cummins said: "I always wanted to keep James because he's got a great attitude and he's fought back from two big injuries.

"He loves the club, which is a huge thing for me, and has known nothing but Bradford since he was 15. Now he has finally put pen to paper I'm delighted."
