Phil Parkinson has penned a new three-year deal with League One new-boys Bradford City.

Parkinson guided the Bantams to promotion this season after orchestrating a League Two play-off final win over Northampton Town.

Parkinson told the club's website: "I am very pleased to secure my place here - it is very important for the continuity of the football club.

"I had verbally agreed my contract a long time ago really, but didn't want anything to detract from our main focus throughout the play-offs, which was obviously to get promoted.

"Now that aim has been achieved, I was able to sit down with the two chairmen and get the contract all finalised.

"We've had a terrific season, but we know we have an important summer ahead of us now. We can't sit back on what we have achieved - we have to keep working and striving forward.

"Our aim now is to get a team on the pitch next year that our supporters will enjoy watching."
