Preston North End

‘Great news’ – Many Preston fans react to emerging player update



Preston North End have confirmed that defender Paul Huntington has signed a new contract at Deepdale.

The 33-year-old, who joined from Yeovil Town in the summer of 2012, has extended his deal with the Whites until the end of the 2021-2022 campaign.

It means that once his deal expires in 18 months time, the former Newcastle United centre-back will be eligible for a testimonial with Preston.

Huntington, who is approaching 300 appearances for the club, has been a regular this season, featuring 14 times in all competitions, and played 90 minutes in Saturday’s 1-0 win over Derby.

And despite seeing his opportunities decrease in recent years, the defender still boasts a wealth of experience, and remains the club’s longest serving player.
