Preston North End seal player agreement



Darnell Fisher has signed a new three-year contract with the club.

The 24-year-old only joined last summer from Rotherham, but he has impressed enough to earn himself a new contract, Preston’s official site has confirmed.

Preston only conceded 46 goals, or an average of one per game, in the league last season, which was the joint-sixth lowest in the league, with Millwall being the only team below them to better that.

Fisher was involved in 34 of those games mainly from the right-back position, but he also covered the other full-back role when needed.

The Verdict

This is a smart move because Preston had a strong defensive unit last season which was key to their success and eventual 7th placed finish just outside the play-offs.

Therefore, they have to prioritise keeping that together with improved contracts once way to increase loyalty to the club.

Alex Neil has done brilliantly in his first season in charge at the club, but the main question is whether this is sustainable.

Keeping together this relatively youthful core will go a long way to achieving this because their mutual understanding will only improve as they play more while they are also still continuing their individual development.
