Hanson signs new deal

29 November 2013

Bantams striker James Hanson has given City a sizeable boost this Friday by committing his future to the football club and signing a new three-and-a-half year deal at the Coral Windows Stadium.

Hanson, whose contract was due to expire at the end of this season, has now signed up to City until the start of July 2017.

Following the club's promotion into League 1 last summer, Hanson has continued to be an integral part in Bantams boss Phil Parkinson's plans for the season.

After netting 15 times during City's amazing 2012/2013 campaign, including vital goals in the club's Capital One Cup and Play-Off campaigns, Hanson has already scored on six occasions for the Bantams this campaign.

Hanson's most recent goal for City - the opener in the Bantams' 2-2 draw at Preston North End last month - was his 57th for the club.

The 6' 4'' powerhouse, who turned 26 earlier this month, is also City's longest-serving outfield player after originally joining the Bantams from Guiseley back in 2009.
