The 27-year-old former Leeds, Castleford and Hull player, who has spent the last two months on loan at the Bulls, has signed a two-year contract and becomes the 19th member of coach James Lowes' squad for 2015.

Williams will be a straight replacement for former St Helens winger Jamie Foster, who is leaving the club at the end of the season and expected to switch to rugby union with Worcester.

"Danny is a very experienced player, who has age on his side," said Lowes. "I am really pleased that the deal has gone through, as I feel Danny provides good competition out wide.

"I am looking forward to working with him during pre-season training and going into next year, where he could prove fairly key for us.

"Wherever he has gone in the past, he has always worked extremely hard and that is what I like about him. His attitude is first class."

Williams, who had a spell in rugby union with Newcastle, said: "I was really excited about coming to Bradford to begin with, so am obviously delighted to be extending my stay.

"This is a club with big ambitions for the future and I want to be a part of what is eventually achieved here.

"I love working with James Lowes and am excited about what the next couple of years could bring.

"With the way the squad is shaping up for next year, I think our supporters can be confident of us making an immediate return to Super League."
