Bradford Bulls' new owner Ryan Whitcut says the club are waiting to announce two new signings while they will also scout the World Cup for recruits.

Whitcut and new co-owner Mark Moore are hoping to have their takeover rubber-stamped by the RFL this week after dispatching their business plan to Red Hall bosses.

The duo have budgets in place for the next five years while Whitcut is also pleased with season tickets sales ahead of the new 2014 Super League season.

Bradford head coach Francis Cummins has the likes of Garreth Carvell and Lee Gaskell in his ranks next term and the club are also set to announce two more faces.

"We've made some great signings, such as Garreth Carvell, and we've got two other signings that we're waiting to announce."

"We're not sat here scratching our heads waiting for the RFL to ratify us - we're moving forward and we're holding positive talks with sponsors and working proactively in many other areas," Whitcut told the Telegraph and Argus.

Five-year plans

"We sent our business plan to the RFL last Friday and we are due for another meeting this week. They've had all our cash-flows, business plan and proof of funds, so we don't foresee any problems whatsoever. We have budgets in place for the next five years.

"We've made some great signings, such as Garreth Carvell, and we've got two other signings that we're waiting to announce."

Bradford are yet to spend up to next season's £1.9million salary cap and with the world's best talent heading to England and Wales for the World Cup the club will keep an eye out for available talent.

"The current budget is £1.9m and we haven't yet spent up to that," he added. "But there is scope to add to the squad further should any players come to our attention during the World Cup."
