The Bantams have been handed a massive pre-match boost ahead of their home fixture with Port Vale this Saturday with the news that striker Nahki Wells has signed a new deal with the club.

The popular forward, pictured alongside Director of Operations David Baldwin, has committed his immediate future to City by signing a fresh contract which will keep him at the Coral Windows Stadium until July 2015.

Wells, whose original deal was due to expire next summer, has been given a new deal for this campaign on improved terms with a further two seasons bolted onto the end of it.

After finishing last season in fine form, including a match-winning hat-trick at Northampton Town back in April, Wells has carried his good run in front of goal into this season as well.

Following his crucial double against Burton Albion in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday, Wells already has five goals to his name this season to leave him level-pegging with fellow forward James Hanson at the top of City's scoring charts.

Wells himself commented: "I'm happy that this is all sorted and agreed with the football club."

"I always wanted to stay at Bradford. I felt this was something that was always going to happen, we just needed everything to be right for both parties. 

"Now it's all signed, I'm delighted to get it done and hopefully the fans will be pleased by the news as well. 

"I'd like to thank them (the fans) for all of their great support so far. They always give me a buzz when they chant my name. I just hope I can do well for them, my family and the football club now.

"We have a good squad here and I'm looking forward to the future."

A delighted Bantams boss Phil Parkinson added: "I am obviously pleased to see Nahki commit his future to the football club."

"It is always important to try and keep your best players at the club. Nahki has done very well for us in recent months and has shown a lot of potential.

"We hope that he can continue to grow and improve with us now he has signed this new deal."
