Brad Potts Pens New Deal At North End

20 September 2021

Preston North End are pleased to confirm Brad Potts has penned a new deal with the club.

The midfielder has extended his stay at Deepdale for an two extra years, with his new contract running until 2024.

Potts first arrived at North End in January 2019, joining for an undisclosed fee from Barnsley, and he’s featured regularly ever since for the Lilywhites.

Brad said: “Obviously I’m absolutely delighted. There have been talks ongoing for a few months now so when I knew the club were wanting to extend my contract I just wanted to get things sorted as soon as possible, so I’m delighted.

“I love it here; I feel at home. It’s probably been a bit up and down in terms of playing and getting a proper run and momentum for myself, but the staff and players know what I’m about and when I do play I always give 100 per cent so I’m just happy to be staying here.”

The 27-year-old from Hexham is approaching 100 games for the club and continues to be used by head coach Frankie McAvoy, having played eight games in all competitions so far this term.

Frankie was pleased the club were able to seal Brad’s new deal and praised his influence both on and off the pitch.

“We’re delighted with Pottsy’s contract,” said the boss. “He’s a great boy, he’s a real part of the good camaraderie and team spirit we have here and he’s a very likable character around the place.

“He’s also a valuable member of the squad. He understands the importance of the squad and that’s vital for me as a coach. He knows and he understands that you’ve got to work hard to get into the team and he does that.

“Everyday he tries his heart out to get into the starting line-up and anytime he’s called upon he gives everything and I love that in a player.”
