Zesh Rehman has become the latest player at Bradford to take a wage cut after signing a two-year contract.

The Pakistan international defender, 25, has turned down several more lucrative offers to commit himself to Valley Parade after spending the second half of last season on loan with Stuart McCall's side from QPR.

Rehman, who has played in the Premier League with Fulham, said: "There were a couple of other clubs from a higher league, but this just felt right."

He added: "My gut feeling told me to sign for Bradford and I've absolutely no regrets. From day one, I felt at home here. I'm fortunate enough to have played in all the divisions and I see this as the next step of my journey.

"I'm 25 now and still feel the best years are ahead of me."

Striker Peter Thorne ended speculation over his future earlier this week when he accepted reduced terms to stay with the Bantams, while Luke O'Brien, Joe Colbeck and Leon Osborne are expected to sign their new deals.
