Upon his arrival in Lancashire over the course of the summer, the former Manchester City youngster has emerged as a solid full-back in the second tier of English football.

Such is the nature of his impressive form at Deepdale, the 25-year old looks to have played his way back into contention for the Republic of Ireland squad ahead of Euro 2016.

He penned a two-year deal with the Lilywhites only last summer, though will obviously be entering the final year of his deal this time around.

As a result, the three rival clubs are believed to have retained an interest in prizing him away.

Wolves themselves could use some strengthening on the left flank, with Sheffield Wednesday having recalled Jeremy Helan from his loan spell.

It’s been a wonderful campaign in a much wider sense for Preston, who’ve excelled as a surprise package under the stewardship of Simon Grayson upon their return to the Championship.

They face a local derby with Burnley tomorrow, aiming to dent the Clarets’ promotion hopes.

Has Cunningham done enough to earn a big move? Would he be silly to leave a Preston side on the up?
