Williams keen to extend stay

Danny Williams 12819373Winger Danny Williams is hopeful that he can extend his loan spell with Bradford Bulls, which would allow him the opportunity to play in Friday’s derby with Leeds Rhinos (5/2 Grand Final winner).

Williams has been on loan from Salford Red Devils for the last month but his loan deal expired following Sunday’s shock win over Wigan.

The winger scored his first try for the Bulls in the 16-8 victory at Odsal and although they are destined for the Championship next season he is keen to extend his stay.

The 27-year-old is a childhood fan of the Rhinos and came through the ranks with the West Yorkshire side before eventually moving on to Castleford (16/1 Grand Final winner) in 2007.

He admits that playing in one of Super League’s fiercest derbies is something he would relish and he is hopeful that the two clubs can come to an agreement in time.

Bradford learned of their relegation after defeat to Huddersfield in Round 21 but that has not changed the attitude of Williams, who insists he is keen on a permanent move.

Williams said: “I’m really enjoying my rugby here and I want to stay.

“Hopefully that will happen and it would be great to play in the Leeds-Bradford derby for the Bulls.

“I grew up in Leeds supporting the Rhinos and went on to play for them, so I know all about the Leeds-Bradford rivalry.

“I’m enjoying it and if everything is good for both parties then hopefully I will be here next year.

“I need to sort out the loan first – stay here for the rest of the season and then we can look to sort out next year. I’ve loved my time here and am keen to stay.”
