O’Brien Pens New Deal With Bantams

James O'Brien

James O’Brien has signed a new 18-month deal with Bradford City.

The Irish midfielder had originally signed a three month contract with the Bantams in August, which was due to expire on Saturday.

Stuart McCall has moved though to snap up the services of the energetic midfielder until the end of next season after being impressed by O’Brien’s effort so far this term.

The news of O’Brien putting pen to paper to tie himself to the Club for longer will be a big boost to the Bantams boss, especially given the fact Lee Bullock and possible midfield replacement Simon Ramsden are both ruled out of Saturday’s trip to Macclesfield.

The Dublin born livewire made his first senior appearance with City during the Bantams Carling Cup 1st round tie at Nottingham Forest in August, before earning his first start of the campaign at Cheltenham Town later on in the month.

The midfielder, who came through the ASE programme while at Birmingham City, has captained the Republic of Ireland Under-16’s and was awarded the eircom/FAI Under-16 International Player of the Year award for his outstanding performances. O’Brien has also represented his country at under 17, 18 and 19 level.
