Already Making Plans

Already Making Plans

Simon Grayson, as he told The Lancashire Evening Post, has said he's already got players in mind that he wants to sign this summer.

Those he wants to bring to Preston have to want to be at Deepdale though as "no jolly up" is being offered. Long-term contracts and lucrative amounts aren't on offer

Some agents have already been sounded out, he said: 'I have an idea of which players I want to bring in - I've spoken to one or two agents.

'Who comes in has to fit into the budget. We won`t be offering four or five-year contracts or major money.

'The players who come in first and foremost have to want to be part of an ambitious club which is moving forward - they won`t be coming for a jolly up.'

The early bird catches the worm and all that!
