Preston North End are still trying to get the signing of right-back Matthew Olosunde over the line.
The former Rotherham defender has been offered terms by the Lilywhites and visited the Euxton training ground last week.
Now it’s a case of waiting to see if he will accept the deal so they can land him on a Bosman.
They’ve got two right-backs in mind, both under contract at other clubs so fees would be required.
Ideally, North End want things sorting before the squad report for pre-season training on Thursday.
However, waiting an extra few days for whoever they get isn’t regarded as being the end of the world.
Olosunde spent the last two seasons with Rotherham, helping them win promotion from League One in 2019/20.
Last season, he made 22 starts and 10 sub appearances in the Championship.
The Millers were relegated on the final day of the campaign, conceding an 88th minute equaliser at Cardiff.
North End’s recruitment at the back would be completed with Olosunde or one of the alternatives.
