Sykes: New deal
Bradford have confirmed England centre Paul Sykes has agreed a new three-year deal to remain with the club.
The 28-year-old, who has been an ever-present for the Bulls this season, is in his second spell at Odsal after spending four years with Harlequins.
And Bulls chairman Peter Hood believes Sykes has become an integral part of the squad.
Hood said: "He's home-grown talent, which is particularly important nowadays, and he's an extremely versatile and important member of the first team.
"Any coach would be happy to have him in their squad."
Sykes, who has scored 216 points in 83 appearances for the Bulls, has set his sights in winning silverware with the club.
"I'm really happy here and I'm delighted to get a new contract," said Sykes.
"I was here before and it's been three years now since I came back from Harlequins. It's a good club and a good set-up.
"We don't know who the coach will be next year but we've got a great bunch of lads and I want to stay with this club and win things here."
