‘Quite sad’, ‘Shame’ – These Preston North End fans react to confirmed player news

Striker Connor Wickham has left Preston North End, the Championship club have announced.

Following the expiry of his contract with Crystal Palace at the end of last season, Wickham joined Preston on a short-term deal back in September following a trial with the Lancashire club.

But after picking up a serious hamstring injury early on in a League Cup win over Cheltenham in just his second appearance for the club, Wickham never made another appearance for Preston.

As a result, it has now been confirmed that the Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday forward has now left Preston after his contract at Deepdale came to an end.

The striker had spent the last few months recovering from his injury at the club’s training ground.
