Simon Grayson has spoken to BBC Radio Lancashire about Bailey Wright’s contract saga saying he “owes the club a lot”.

The Australian centre-back, who was included in the 2014 World Cup squad, has been at Preston North End since 2009 and has established himself as a starter in the team over the years.

He has previously won the accolade of Player of the Year at Deepdale, as well as playing a big part in the promotion-winning campaign which saw the Lilywhites return to the Championship.

Wright’s contract comes to an end at the end of the season and worryingly for the club, he has not yet signed a new contract.

There have been several rumours linking him to lots of potential destinations including China and most recently Bristol City.

Simon Grayson recently spoke to BBC Radio Lancashire about the situation saying, “We’d like to have him tied down, he’s been good for us, but the football club has been very good to him as well. I’m sure there’ll be some more talks. It’s something we’ll try and resolve.”

”I’m sure there’ll be some more talks. It’s something we’ll try and resolve.”

Wright has been a consistent performer in the North End side and it’s safe to say that the majority of fans are desperate to hold on to the 24-year-old.

Grayson added: “I think Bailey owes the club a lot. But whatever outcome will be, will be.
