Cunningham Completes Preston Switch

Greg Cunningham has joined Preston North End from Bristol City for an undisclosed fee.

The Irish defender has penned a two-year deal at Deepdale, having completed a medical during the club’s pre-season tour of Scotland.

Manager Steve Cotterill said: “Greg had very little playing time last year with the emergence of Derrick Williams and Joe Bryan, so we’ve decided to let him move on.

“I know that leaves us short on numbers, but we had young Lloyd Kelly who played tonight and did very well, and we couldn’t really stand in Greg’s way when he had this opportunity.

“We’ll be looking to strengthen in that area. We’re already on to something else and maybe that one will drop for us next week.

“We wish Greg well, he was great for us and we wish him all the best with his new club.”

Cunningham joined City in 2012 from Manchester City and went of to make 107 appearances, scoring five goals.
