Preston North End have completed the signing of Exeter City’s centre half Jordan Storey.
The 20-year-old defender has agreed a four-year deal at Deepdale, joining for an undisclosed fee.
The Yeovil-born player came through the ranks at St James’ Park, breaking into the first team squad earlier this year and retaining his place as the Grecians reached the Play-Off Final at Wembley.
He played in the successful semi-final games against Lincoln City, as well as starting against Coventry City under the arch at Wembley, finishing the campaign with 17 appearances and two goals for the side that was then managed by Paul Tisdale.
After putting pen to paper with the Lilywhites, Jordan said: “It is a new challenge for me and I can’t wait to get started at a big club.
“The last couple of months have been great for me. We managed to get to the Play-Off Final [at Exeter City]. It didn’t manage to work out for us, but on a personal note, from where I have come from, it has been great for me.
“I now want to learn as much as I can. The manager is going to mould me and build me into the best player that I can hopefully. It was nice to speak to him and to get to know him and I am looking forward to getting started.
“It is a cracking stadium and it is different to what I have been playing in regularly and I can’t wait to get started and show what I am about.”
