Preston North End can confirm they have agreed the transfer of Bailey Wright to Bristol City for an undisclosed fee.
Bailey, who made the last of his 205 appearances for the Lilywhites on Monday at Burton Albion, would have been out of contract on 30th June and due to his age would have been able to leave on a free transfer at the end of his current deal.
The club had been attempting to discuss a new contract with the Australian international since last summer, but he had declined to enter into negotiations and indicated his desire to move on.
In the circumstances, the only option left to Preston North End was to allow Bailey to leave if an acceptable transfer fee could be agreed with another interested club and following discussions with the Robins a fee has been agreed.
Preston North End would like to thank Bailey for his years of commitment and effort and wish him the very best for the future.
