Preston North End centre half Paul Huntington has signed an extension to his contract until the summer of 2022.
The Lilywhites’ No.23, who joined the club on a free transfer in the summer of 2012, will take his time at the club to ten years with this new deal.
Since signing on a free transfer from Yeovil Town, he has gone on to make 292 appearances and is closing in on becoming the 26th player to play 300 or more competitive games for the club in its 140-year history, where he will join the likes of Alan Kelly Senior, Sir Tom Finney and most recently, current team-mate Paul Gallagher.
In those games he has also contributed 18 goals, including the second in the club’s 2015 League One Play-Off Final victory over Swindon Town at Wembley.
Speaking after completing the paperwork, the 33-year-old defender said: “I’m obviously delighted to sign, it’s a club that I have been at for a long time now and next year will make it my tenth year.
“It’s a very special club to me and I think everybody knows what it means to me being a part of this club and this group of lads as well.
“I’m delighted with it and I’m looking forward to cracking on and doing as well as we can this season.”
