Preston North End midfielder Alan Browne has signed a new three-year contract with the club, announced the club’s official website.
The Republic of Ireland international becomes the sixth senior member of the squad to agree fresh terms at the club this summer, following Tom Clarke, Darnell Fisher, Paul Gallagher, Sean Maguire and most recently Paul Huntington.
The 23-year-old was an ever-present at Deepdale last season, racking up 44 league appearances in Alex Neil’s squad.
Speaking to the club’s website, Browne expressed his delight at his new deal.
“I’ve probably progressed year on year,” He said.
“More so last year than any other I really kicked on and showed my true potential and carried that out.
“I could have done better and in the coming season I want to try and develop my game even more, continue to progress and help to get the club to where we want to be.”
Browne was a crucial member of Alex Neil’s side as North End pushed admirably for the playoffs, so tying him down to a new deal is a great move.
The 23-year-old will have been garnering a fair bit of attention this summer so having him sign a new deal will be a massive boost to the team and the fans.
If Preston are to break into the playoff picture this season then keeping players of Browne’s calibre is just as crucial as bringing in new faces.
