Midfielder Alan Browne has signed a new three year contract keeping him at Deepdale for another three years.
The 20-year-old, who scored four goals in 41 games, joined the Lilywhites at the start of 2014 from Irish Premier League side Cork City.
Browne was more than happy to sign a new deal when approached and is looking forward to the challenges of the Championship next season.
“This new contract now just gives me the freedom to go and play again and do what I do and it’s great to get it done” said Browne.
The North End player continued by admitting his side aren’t there just to take part and the other clubs in the Championship should be wary of the Lilywhites.
PNE boss Simon Grayson was happy the young midfielder has decided to remain at the club and believes we have yet to see the best from him.
“It’s great to see another young talented player commit their future. Alan has developed over the last year and a half and he has grown as a player” said Grayson.
Browne becomes the sixth player to sign a new contract since promotion after Joe Garner, Paul Huntington, Tom Clarke, John Welsh and Chris Humphrey all signed new deals.
Australian Bailey Wright has also agreed to stay on another year and Jermaine Beckford and Paul Gallagher both moved to PNE on a permanent basis.
