Preston North End are hard at work behind the scenes looking to conclude some key transfer deals, as they look to strengthen their squad further to aid them in what will be a gruelling season. Here's a look at some of the biggest Championship deals that could go through before next month's deadline.
1. Norwich City - Max Aarons - OUT
European heavyweights Bayern Munich and Barcelona have both been linked with the Canaries left-back, who impressed in his debut Premier League season despite his side going down.

2. Luton Town - Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall - IN
The 22-year-old Leicester City midfielder starred at Blackpool on loan last season, and the Hatters are keen to bring him in. He's featured in pre-season for the Foxes this season, but looks likely to leave on loan.

3. Brentford - Said Benrahma - OUT
The Algerian ace lit up the Championship last season with some dazzling displays, and has arguably earned a move to the Premier League. Crystal Palace, Leeds and Fulham.

4. Sheffield Wednesday/Cardiff City - Dion Sanderson - IN
The Wolves defender is set to leave the club before the window closes, either on loan and permanent deal. Cardiff had him on loan last season, and want him permanently, but the Owls are very keen too.
