Preston And Norwich Agree Rudd Fee

Preston And Norwich Agree Rudd Fee

They often say never go back, such a stance hasn't been taken with Declan Rudd in the past as the goalkeeper has already spent two spells on loan at Preston, 2013 and 2014.

Not only did Rudd go back he's set to come back again. However, this time it'll be third time luck, all being well, for all involved as the Norwich keeper is set to complete a permanent move to Deepdale.

According to the Lancashire Evening Post, Preston are closing in on a deal for Rudd, 26, after a fee was agreed with Norwich - the LEP say this is lower than the £1m figure quoted by some reports.

Rudd has spent the whole of his professional career at Carrow Road - aside from various loans, including one at Charlton last season - joining the club as a schoolboy. But his opportunities have been limited.

The release of Andres Lindegaard has left Preston on the lookout for another keeper, Chris Maxwell was the first choice for Simon Grayson from September onwards, extending his contract during the last campaign, but now Rudd looks set to offer up some serious competition.

During his half-season loan in 2013 Rudd made 14 appearances, a season-long spell at Deepdale in the following campaign, 2013-14, saw him turn out in 55 games in all competitions.
