Preston appear to be close to their first signing of the summer albeit it appears to be a loan move. After having Leon Cort on loan from Burnley last season. it seems that Preston have made an approach for Burnley central defender Clarke Carlisle. The defender was left out of the Burnley first team towards the end of last season and Preston have made an approach for a season long loan for the 31 year old. It is now down to the individual to decide fi he wants to drop a devision for a season.
