Preston remain patient in their pursuit of Everton striker Tom Cannon as they look to bring him back to Deepdale for a second spell. In this latest update by the LiverpoolEcho, his potential loan exit is being put on hold until the Toffees bring in more attacking reinforcements. Stoke City and Sunderland have also been linked with him over recent times.

Linked-winger joins new club

Marseille winger Konrad de la Fuente, who has been linked with the Lilywhites in the past, has joined Eibar. The 22-year-old, who is a USA international, has moved to the Spanish second tier on a temporary basis as he looks to get some game time under his belt. He has been on the books at Barcelona in the past.

Boss provides update

Preston boss Ryan Lowe is hoping to bring in at least two more signings and wants his business to be down before deadline day. The Lancashire side are believed to be in the hunt for a new left-back following Alvaro Fernandez’s return to Manchester United at the end of the last campaign.

Lowe has said, as per LancashireLive: “Hopefully in the next few weeks, before the window shuts, we can have our squad together - so we know what we’ve got and we aren’t waiting until the last day. It gets a bit messy so we don’t want to get into that position. We just have to wait and see what happens over the next few weeks in terms of adding two more players.”
