The 22-year-old is currently midway through an 18-month loan spell from Leeds Rhinos
Bradford Bulls have announced that half-back Jordan Lilley has signed a permanent two-year deal with the club.
It means he will stay at Odsal until at least the end of the 2021 season.
The 22-year-old is currently midway through an 18-month loan spell from Super League outfit Leeds Rhinos but has pen-to-paper to extend his stay in the red, amber and black.
Lilley has proved instrumental in the club’s stunning cup run so far in 2019 – slotting the winning drop goal against Featherstone Rovers before a man-of-the-match display in the Round Six defeat of his parent club.
Head coach John Kear said: “We are over the moon to have him on board for the next two years – he is clearly happy here and he is constantly improving week by week,” said Kear, who is sponsored by Lowie Recruitment Int’l.
“He has contributed massively since he came to the club last year - he has come up with some big plays in the last few weeks and his attitude is fantastic, he is always eager to learn.
“He has a great connection with the fans and the important thing for us is his best years are ahead of him and we look forward to seeing that progression.”
Lilley added: “I am made up to have signed with the club for the next two years,” said Lilley, who is sponsored by 39 Steps Consulting.
“I want to be in that team that takes the Bradford Bulls all the way back to Super League.
“We are working towards that and I am looking forward to the challenge.”
