BBC Radio Leeds has reported that Bradford will extend players contracts for up to three years if they agree to lesser wages.

City have estimated debts of more than £30million and came close to folding after being placed into administration in May but the club struck a deal with the Professional Footballers' Association at the end of August which will see it receive financial help for the next two years.

The Bantams were hoping to off-load Ashley Ward, one of the club's highest earners, earlier this week but the striker is reluctant to move because he and his family are settled in the Manchester area.
