PRESTON NORTH END have announced that Irish midfielder Alan Browne has put pen to paper on a new three-year contract.

Browne has committed his future to the English Championship club on improved terms, just 12 months since signing his previous three-year deal.

The 23-year-old, who joined Preston from Cork City in 2014, has made 150 appearances for the Lancashire outfit.

After playing 44 times in the 2017-18 campaign, which saw Preston narrowly miss out on the play-offs, Browne was named the club’s player of the season.

“I’ve probably progressed year on year and I’ve been rewarded with contracts at the end of most of those seasons so that’s been really pleasing for me.” Browne said. “More so last year than any other I really kicked on and showed my true potential and carried that out.

“Last year was really pleasing for me but at the same time there are things 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.”

Browne has been capped three times at senior level by the Republic of Ireland, his most recent outing coming in the 2-0 friendly defeat to France in May.

He follows in the footsteps of fellow Ireland international Sean Maguire by inking a new three-year deal with Preston this summer.
