Davies was voted North End's player of the year by both fans and team-mates, and with good reason too.

According to EFL Stats, the 23-year-old also made the highest number of clearances in the Preston squad - 236 - while the 54 interceptions he made was the highest.

Paul Gallagher was the assist king at PNE, with seven of his crosses or passes setting goals up.

The on-loan Lukas Nmecha made the highest number of successful dribbles (37) and he also made the most appearances in the squad - playing 41 times in the Championship.

However, 17 of those were from the bench, with Davies making the most starts (39).

Nmecha has now returned to Manchester City after his season-long loan and North End says they are unlikely to bring him back a second time.

Callum Robinson had the most number of shots in the Preston squad, trying his luck 32 times.

In Championship action, him and midfielder Alan Browne both scored 12 goals with Robinson also finding the net in the Caraboa Cup against Middlesbrough.
