Bradford City may have released the most bizarre contract announcement of the summer, days before the transfer window opens. Watch below:
Clubs up and down the country are planning creative ways to announce their latest signings, with the window opening on Friday June 10.
League Two side Bradford have got the summer off to a slightly odd start by announcing the contract renewal of midfielder Levi Sutton with an extraordinary tribute to WWE superstar 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin.
Announcing a new two-year deal for 'The Scunthorpe Rattlesnake', Bradford released a video of Sutton waving chairs around and attempting to look menacing to Austin's iconic entrance music.
At one point, Sutton waves his hand in front of his face in the style of John Cena for no apparent reason.
Bantams fans were left perplexed by the contract announcement.
"Wtf is this. It makes no sense," wrote one fan on Twitter.
Another added: "Admin been on the Jubilee pre-drinks already? The hell is this video? Great signing though."
A third wrote: "Great signing but I have so many questions about that video. Like so many!"
Sutton, who has scored four goals in 74 appearances for Bradford since joining the club in 2020, says he is delighted to extend his stay at the Utilita Energy Stadium.
"It has taken some time, but I am just glad it is now done. I cannot wait to get going for the new season and get this stadium full and rocking again," he said.

"I have enjoyed every second of being here so far. The supporters have been great with me, and I think that is what you want as a player, for the fans to take to you.
"Leaving here with what I have done, it would have been a failure. I think I have done well personally, but as a project we have not achieved, so I did not want to leave.
"My plans when arriving two years ago were to help get this club into League One. Now, we have another chance to do that and, with the squad and manager we have, we are more than capable.
"I am excited for next season and to see what it brings. This club is too big to be in League Two, and we have got to take it to the next level."
