James Meredith: Defender signs new Bradford City deal

Bradford City defender James Meredith has signed a new one-year deal with the League One club.

The 26-year-old extended his stay at Valley Parade after his previous deal with the club expired at the beginning of the month.

Meredith has made 73 appearances for the Bantams since joining from York City in 2012.

The Australian-born full-back started his career at Derby County and also previously played for Shrewsbury Town.

He played just 29 matches last term, having missed three months from January with a broken foot.

Meredith was also sidelined for part of the 2012-13 with glandular fever.
