Summer Transfer Rumours Begin

The first name linked with a move to Preston is George Edmundson from Oldham. The young cetnre back has been targeted by North End and there were mentions throughout the season of North End's interest.

The signing would fit Neil's mould of young up and coming players from the lower divisions although the manager did hint at adding more experience to the squad as well.

If Edmundson did sign then there would be a question mark over the future of the more senior centre backs Paul Huntington and Tom Clarke who had playing time restricted this season for various reasons.
