Preston North End’s £30m squad market value as ex-Everton and Sheffield United stars valued

The January transfer window has now shut - and the valuations of Preston North End's squad has been revealed.

Preston North End had a far from memorable January transfer window with no new arrivals.

Ryan Lowe's side did not bring in any new faces but several players did commit their future to the club. Dai Cornell penned new terms and so did former Sheffield United man Ben Whiteman, whilst the Alan Browne saga continues to rumble on in the background. Calvin Ramsay was returned to Liverpool and subsequently loaned back out to Bolton Wanderers whilst a replacement wasn't sourced.

A criticism of PNE in recent years is how their players contracts have been allowed to run down rather than being sold for a profit. Supporters don't want to see any of their best players leave but if they are to depart the club then they'd at least like them to be sold for a decent fee so that can be reinvested back in to the squad.

Browne is out of contract in the summer and there was interest reported from Serie A outfit Salernitana at the end of the window. North End held firm and rebuffed any approach but they must now persuade their club captain to sign new terms at Deepdale with a contract offer remaining on the table from earlier in the campaign.

The transfer window may be shut, but that doesn't stop the fallout of a condensed month of transfers. PNE's performance in the league at the minute has them in 10th and just three points off of the play-offs. Has there been any standout starts in the team that you feel are invaluable to the side? Here according to TransferMarkt, we look at the most valuable players in the PNE squad ranked from lowest to highest.
