Rudd Open To PNE Switch

Rudd Open To PNE Switch

Preston's on loan goalkeeper Declan Rudd has admitted that he would be open to a permanent move to Deepdale.

Playing first team football is what the England U21 wants and this is what he's been doing at Preston so, as he told BBC Radio Lancashire, if the chance to make a permanent switch comes about this summer he could do this: 'I obviously want to play football. No one in football wants to sit and watch every Saturday. Everyone wants to play.

'If the opportunity was there I would seriously think about it.

'Preston is a great club and they're going places under the new management. It's a massive club to play for and, with a fan base like this, it's brilliant to play in front of that every week.'

I don't think many would be opposed to Rudd joining The Lilywhites permanently, however with him still having a year on his Norwich contract it's going to be tough financially to make this move happen isn't it?
