Preston North End are starting to pick up in the Sky Bet Championship, with Alex Neil’s side winning three of their last four league games.
The Lilywhites have secured back-to-back wins after victories over QPR and Huddersfield Town, and have climbed up to 13th in the league standings.
One player who has played a role in helping North End climb up the table is Daniel Johnson, whose long-term future at Deepdale remains up in the air.
Preston North End: Are these 10 facts about Deepdale true or false?
Over the course of the summer transfer window, Rangers were heavily linked with Johnson, with Steven Gerrard looking to lure the midfielder to Ibrox.
The club publicly refused that they have not received any offers for any of their players, with Rangers being linked with a £2million move for the Jamaican.
Johnson was left out of the squad in their first four games of the Championship campaign, but he marked his first league start of the season with a goal against QPR.
Johnson may be back playing for Preston, but his future at Deepdale remains uncertain.
Football Insider have recently reported that the club will make fresh attempts to tie Johnson down to a new deal after fending off Rangers’ attempts, with his contract expiring at the end of the season.
Football Insider also claim that Preston’s coaches admit that Johnson’s head has been turned by Rangers’ interest, so it remains to be seen whether that affects his decision-making.
Will he sign a new deal, or will he continue to be swayed by Gerrard’s interest?
