PNE Complete Signing Of Simon Makienok

7 June 2016

Preston North End can confirm the signing of striker Simon Makienok on a one-year loan from Palermo.

The loan will start on 1st July 2016, and the 25-year-old becomes North End's second signing of the summer after securing the signature of goalkeeper Chris Maxwell last month.

Makienok comes to the Club with Championship experience after spending the 2015/16 season on loan at Charlton Athletic.

The striker has spent most of his career to date in Denmark, before moving to Italian club Palermo in 2014.

Before his move to Serie A, Makienok scored 35 goals in 74 appearances for Brondby in the Danish Superliga.

Makienok also represented Denmark at youth level from the U19s, and has gone on to make six appearances for the senior side.

Speaking of the latest addition to his squad, PNE manager Simon Grayson said: "I am delighted to add Simon Makienok to our striking options at the Club. His height, plus of course his international experience, brings us a different dimension to the squad and provides us further options at the top end of the pitch."

Preston North End would like to welcome Simon to the Club and thank Palermo for their assistance in making this loan happen.
