Bradford Bulls back row forward James Donaldson has signed a new one-year deal, including the option of a second, with the Super League side.
The 21-year-old has made 16 league appearances for the Bulls this season.
He told BBC Radio Leeds: "It's quite worrying when your contract is running down because you don't know what will happen.
"I'm glad that I've got it off my mind now and I can't concentrate on next season."
Donaldson added: "I think the fans want to see players who have come through the academy stay here, lots of them have been getting in touch with me on Twitter.
"I'm looking to put a bit of size on in the off-season and next year I'm looking to put myself in the best position to start every week."
