Bradford City AFC is delighted to announce Lee Angol has put pen to paper on a new, initial one-year contract extension.

The deal sees the forward remain at the Utilita Energy Stadium for the 2022/23 campaign, with the option of a further season in claret and amber. 

Having joined from Leyton Orient last summer, Angol has netted six goals in 21 appearances for the Bantams, starting City’s past two matches under Mark Hughes. 

The 27-year-old said: “I am really happy. This is what I have wanted for a long time.

“Being out for so long this season, I have been anxious to see where I would be next year, but this is where I want to be.

“Sometimes, when you are in a team, you just feel a connection, and feel like it is where you are supposed to be. I definitely feel that here. Everything is telling me to be here. 

“There has been a real positive feeling in the past few games of the season since I have come back from injury. We want it to continue into next season, and hopefully that will be the one.”

Manager Hughes added: “We are pleased to have Lee on board for next year, and are looking forward to continuing to have him available. 

“He is a very good footballer and an asset for us to have in our side. We enjoy working with him. 

“Lee has done really well since coming back into the side, and I am pleased for him because everyone acknowledges what he can do as a player, and the impact he has when he is fit and on form. 

“He has had a strong end to the campaign, and will be able to take confidence from that heading into next season and beyond.”
