The two-year deal takes the Irishman through to the summer of 2023.

Cunningham returned to North End in January, initially signing on loan from Cardiff City.

That was turned into a permanent deal until the end of the season in February due to the number of loan players in the PNE squad.

Greg Cunningham has signed a new two-year contract with Preston North End

He's now struck a deal for a longer stay as planning starts for the 2021/22 campaign.

Cunningham, 30, has made eight starts and one substitute appearance since returning in January, with him scoring in the 2-1 derby victory over Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park.

After putting pen to paper he told PNE's official website: "I am delighted to get things sorted. I have said since I returned to the club, that I feel right at home and it is great to get it done before the season finishes.

“We’ve got two games to go, we want to pick up as many points as we can and then I can go home and relax, knowing my future is sorted at the club I love."
