Baker, who has featured for the reserves on a number of occasions this season, has been given a one-year deal with the Bantams.

Manager Phil Parkinson said: "The criteria for earning a pro contract is simply whether we feel they're going to be good enough to play in the first team next year.

"It's obviously pleasing for Adam to be offered a professional contract. He deserves it and he now needs to go away in the summer and work really hard to give him a chance of making a real statement once the lads come back for pre-season training."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
