Preston’s transfer dealings to date show they could be the potential dark horses in this season’s Championship.
The club has just signed Graham Burke from Shamrock Rovers who made his Republic of Ireland debut in the last round of international fixtures prior to the World Cup.
Ryan Ledson is another quality addition from Oxford. He is someone who is more than capable of stepping up into the second tier.
North End were compact and hard to beat last season and that was typified but their then captain Greg Cunningham.
Losing the left-back to Cardiff City was a huge blow, on and off the pitch. You would think it would be a departure that could adversely affect the club. But it shouldn’t.
Signing Andrew Hughes from Peterborough is a master-stroke, and the new signing will be more than a suitable replacement for the outgoing skipper.
Hughes was highly impressive for the Posh last season and with these additions, Preston look as much the part they did last season.
Alex Neil is making some astute signings this summer, and they are all players who will complement and enhance the shape and structure of his team.
They are all players who improve the squad. There has been no signing so far that is just to make up the numbers.
There was a steely determination to Preston last season, and the hard-to-break structure of the side will be even more difficult to penetrate this campaign, too.
