Bradford Bulls have received a huge boost with the news that Matty Blythe has signed a three year contract with the club.

The Centre has been on a season long loan from Warrington Wolves but after discussions between the two clubs Warrington have agreed to release him from the last year of his contract and he has now completed the move to the Provident Stadium on a permanent basis.

He has scored 7 tries in his 15 appearances for the Bulls this season.

Matty Blythe is happy to have committed his future to the club:

“I think I've played well this year and Franny has rewarded me with a three-year deal.

“I'm really happy that I've got my future secure and I'm ready to kick on. I spoke to Tony Smith and we both came to the conclusion that I needed more rugby. I wanted to be playing Super League week in week out and this deal at Bradford is a great opportunity to do that.”

Francis Cummins feels the signing is significant for the club:

“Matty is someone who has been in the Warrington system but has been given a chance here and is enjoying it. He will only get better.

“Matty is an important signing for this club and for him to agree three years is a huge thing. It shows you that players are willing to commit their future here and back the club.

Someone who knows Matty well is Bulls Deputy Director, Robbie Hunter-Paul:

“I had the pleasure of playing with Matty as a young professional in my time at Leigh and I am excited that he has signed for us. He is an outstanding athlete and is very versatile in that he can play in the outside backs as well as the second row. To have that quality and versatility available is a massive plus for any Super League Coach.”
