While Preston only learned their Championship schedule yesterday, transfer talk continues to dominate the headlines.

North End have already been linked with a host of players this summer - and the latest batch of rumours are no different.

It was only 18-month ago that Alex Neil sanctioned a £10million sale of Jordan Hugill to West Ham but according to The Sun, the 27-year-old is wanted back at Deepdale.

A return to his old stomping ground will bring an end to an unsuccessful spell at the London Stadium after spending last season on loan at hometown club Middlesbrough.

There are also reports that Preston have been knocked back by an Irish winger in recent days.

Shamrock Rovers star Neil Farrugia, as per the Daily Mail, is said to have snubbed a move to Preston, Leeds and Middlesbrough as he wants to complete his Biomedical Degree.
