The 19-year-old moved to the Bulls at the start of March, initially on a one-month deal, as cover for the injured Lee Gaskell after the former St Helens player damaged knee ligaments against Wakefield in round two of the season.
Sutcliffe made four appearances during his time with Bradford, his last being Sunday's 22-18 reverse away at Widnes that saw him cross for a try just before half time at the Select Security Stadium.
"Liam has been fantastic for us," said Bradford coach Francis Cummins. "He has provided another number for us - in a key position.
"In return, we have been able to give him some valuable game time in Super League.
"I believe both parties have benefited from his move and I would like to thank (Leeds coach) Brian McDermott and (chief executive) Gary Hetherington for their assistance.
"They were more than willing to help us and I must pay tribute to them both for their kindness."
