Preston North End are set to sign Rotherham United defender Matthew Olosunde, according to a recent report from Football Insider.
Olosunde’s contract with Rotherham is set to expire on Wednesday, and the same report claims that he’ll leave the Yorkshire-based club when his contract reaches a conclusion.
The full-back had been with Rotherham since 2019, and went on to make 72 appearances in total for the Millers, although he looks set to leave the club.
Olosunde made 33 appearances for Paul Warne’s side last term, although his efforts weren’t quite enough to see them survive in the second tier, as they dropped back into League One.
But it appears as though Preston have been impressed with what they’ve seen from the 23-year-old, with Football Insider reporting that they’ve made a breakthrough in talks with the defender over a move to Deepdale.
Preston finished 13th in the Championship table last term, and will be hoping they can make a positive start to the upcoming new league campaign.
North End are set to take on newly-promoted Hull City in their season opener on Saturday 7th August, in what could potentially be a tricky test up against Grant McCann’s side.
What was the score when Preston last played these 25 teams?
I like the sound of this potential deal.
Olosunde impressed whilst with Rotherham United, and I certainly feel as though he’s more than deserving of a move back into the Championship this season.
The Millers will be fearing that some of their other key players could attract interest from other clubs this summer, and Olosunde is likely to be the latest player to head for the exit door this summer.
On a free transfer, this could turn out to be an excellent bit of transfer business for North End, as they prepare for the upcoming new Championship campaign.
