Bradford Bulls forward Elliott Whitehead has agreed a new five-year deal with the Super League club.

Whitehead, 22, who scored his fourth try of the season in Saturday's win over St Helens, is now contracted to remain at Odsal until 2016.

Bulls coach Mick Potter told the club website: "Elliott will continue to improve, of that I have no doubt.

"He has come on in leaps and bounds over the past couple of years and he's now firmly established in the side."

Whitehead added: "I am a Bradford player through and through and I love being at the club. Everyone there is awesome with me.

"The club have talked about building for the future and me signing on for another few years is part of that."
