Bradford City captain Romain Vincelot is close to signing a new deal at the club, HITC Sport understands from sources close to the club.

Vincelot, who joined Bradford from Coventry last summer, is entering the final year of his current deal and a number of clubs have been monitoring his situation.

However, Bradford are keen to tie down the Frenchman to a new long-term deal as Vincelot has established himself as a key man in Stuart McCall's side at Valley Parade.

The 31-year-old was a virtual ever-present for Bradford last season, starting 51 games in all competitions for the Bantams.

Vincelot, who can play in defence and midfield, quickly made himself an integral member of the team upon his arrival at Bradford and he was named captain last season.

The former Brighton man helped Bradford reach the League One Play-off final last season at Wembley, only to lose to Millwall.

McCall is keen to go one better next season and is looking to build a side capable of winning promotion to the Championship and he sees Vincelot playing a key role in that.

Vincelot boasts a wealth of experience since making the move from his native France to England in 2010.

The versatile performer has had spells with Dagenham, Brighton and Leyton Orient, Coventry City before joining Bradford last summer.
