Bradford City have emerged as a potential saviour for their financially-stricken neighbours Bradford Bulls.

The npower League Two club are behind the latest bid for the Bulls, according to the Bradford Telegraph & Argus.

The offer, which came with no conditions attached, was discussed by the Rugby Football League during a "positive" conference call on Wednesday night with chief executive Nigel Wood, who is in Australia.

After the meeting the RFL said the bid, which according to joint administrator Brendan Guilfoyle topped a potential buy-out by Super League Europe, was the first unconditional offer they had received and talks would continue.

Bradford City joint chairman Julian Rhodes, who has previously spoken about the clubs sharing a ground, admitted they have been speaking to the RFL and the administrator about how they could help their struggling neighbours.

"We just wanted to see how we could help to keep the club alive, whether that's in the Super League or in the Championship," he told the T&A.

"We don't want to see the club die."
