As well as incomings, forward Tom Barkhuizen also put pen to paper on a new deal, committing his future to the club until at least the summer of 2022.

Striker David Nugent rejoined the club as the second signing of the transfer window, 12 years after leaving following a successful first spell a Deepdale. Nugent made his first appearance back in a PNE shirt in pre-season against Fleetwood Town as he stepped up his rehabilitation for an injury picked up in the first leg of the Play-Offs with Derby County at the end of the 2018/19 season.
Signing on a season-long loan from Aston Villa, Andre Green was the third player through the door this summer. Green completed his move two days before the opening game of the season away to Millwall and made his debut as a second half substitute at The Den.
Midfielder Tom Bayliss was the final player to sign ahead of the deadline, completing his move from Coventry City the day before the 2019/20 season opener. Bayliss signed a four-year deal with North End, and the club fought off competition from a number of clubs for the highly rated midfielder's signature.
