Bradford Bulls hooker Adam O’Brien has revealed that he wants to stay at the club, regardless of what division they are playing in next season.
The homegrown hooker, who was linked with Super League champions Leeds at the back end of last season, is out of contract at the end of the current season, with Super League sides again believed to be interested if O’Brien came on the market.
But the 22-year-old insisted that he’s hoping to remain at the Bulls and try and get them back into Super League.
“Bradford are hoping to keep me and I’m hoping to stay,” he told the Telegraph and Argus.
“Yes, I am out of contract at the end of the season but I’ll be doing my best to perform and hopefully get us into Super League.
“We will go from there and, while there is nothing in writing at the moment, I’m hoping to sign for Bradford again.”
And O’Brien amazingly is just a few short years off a testimonial for long-standing service to the Bulls – something he is consciously aware of.
“I’m looking forward to it and if I do then it’s all good for me,” he insisted.
“I know it sounds silly because I’m 22, but I’m only four years off my testimonial here.”
