Club Statement

29 June 2017

Preston North End have today been contacted by Sunderland Football Club to ask permission to speak to Simon Grayson in relation to their vacant managerial position.

Having spoken to Simon, he has asked permission to speak to the Black Cats and therefore the club had no option but to allow these conversations to take place, with a compensation package already guaranteed in his contract.

Whilst these talks are ongoing, Steve Thompson will be in charge of first team affairs.

The club will make no further comment at this stage.
