Preston transfer news: Lilywhites ‘working on deal’ for 15-cap international striker

Ryan Lowe is reportedly closing in on yet another new signing.

The new Championship season is just days away as all of the hope of expectation continues to grow at clubs across English football’s second tier.

New signings have been made, the friendly fixtures are completed and the stresses and strains of pre-season training have all been focused towards being fully prepared this coming weekend when the new campaign gets underway.

For Preston North End, that means a short trip to newly-promoted Wigan Athletic as Ryan Lowe’s side look to improve on last season’s mid-table finish and push towards a play-off spot.

Lowe has been active in the transfer market with the likes of Newcastle United goalkeeper Freddie Woodman and former Liverpool attacking midfielder Ben Woodburn moving to Deepdale during the close-season - and one more new addition is reportedly close to be added to the North End squad ahead of the big kick-off.
