Preston midfielder Alan Browne has signed a new three-year deal at Deepdale, the club have announced.

The 23-year-old Republic of Ireland international is the Lilywhites’ current player of the year and has made over 150 appearances.

‘More so last year than any other, I really kicked on and showed my true potential and carried that out,’ Browne said.

‘Last year was really pleasing for me, but at the same time there are things I feel I could have done better and in the coming season I want to try and develop my game even more, continue to progress and help to get the club to where we want to be.’

The Cork-born player is the sixth senior squad member to agree new terms this summer, following skipper Tom Clarke, Darnell Fisher, Paul Gallagher, Sean Maguire and Paul Huntington.

Browne, who joined Preston in January 2014, was also voted the club’splayers’ player of the year at the end of the last campaign and won the goal of the season award.
