The 20-year-old only arrived at Valley Parade last summer following a successful trial but proved to be a valuable member of manager Phil Parkinson's side during his debut campaign.

McHugh made 28 appearances in total including six Capital One Cup starts as he helped the Bantams reach a memorable Wembley final, even getting his name on the scoresheet in a dramatic 3-1 semi-final first leg victory over Aston Villa.

McHugh's efforts for Bradford last term saw him recognised at Under-21 level for the Republic of Ireland.

He will now look to establish himself as a regular starter in Parkinson's XI as the Bantams aim to survive in League One following May's play-off success.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
