Preston North End are gearing up for a busy summer in the transfer market.
The Lilywhites endured a frustrating campaign in which they ended the season in 13th position in the Championship, but with hopes of mounting a surprise play-off push, it’ll mean that the club need to kick on in terms of recruitment.
According to the Lancashire Post, Preston are closing in on three summer deals for Daniel Iversen, Sepp van den Berg and Liam Lindsay.
Iversen, who is a Leicester City player, has spent the second half of the season on loan at Deepdale and has really impressed after conceding just 25 goals in 23 appearances for the club.
Van den Berg has also impressed since arriving from Liverpool on loan, making 16 appearances for the club.
It’s claimed that both players are ‘edging closer’ to agreeing fresh loan agreements that will see them stay with Preston for the new campaign – although exact terms are yet to be agreed.
As for Liam Lindsay, it’s reported that the Lilywhites could be closing in on a permanent switch for the Stoke City defender.
The 25-year-old has made 13 appearances for Preston this term but could now turn that loan deal permanent over the course of the summer.
