Preston North End are delighted to confirm Liam Lindsay has signed a new contract with the club, keeping him at Deepdale for a further two years.
The central defender, who has featured 19 times in the Championship so far this season, has put pen to paper on a new deal which will extend his stay until at least 2025.
Liam has made just short of 50 appearances during his time with PNE, having initially joined on loan in February 2021 before signing permanently in June later that year.
Liam said: “I’m happy; I’m buzzing. It got done quite quickly as well, it didn’t drag on so I’m happy with that and I’m buzzing about it.
“The gaffer pulled me the other week and by the next week it was done so it was pretty straightforward and I’m happy to be here.
“I love everything about it [at PNE] – the lads, the gaffer, the management staff, the fans. Everyone’s been amazing so I’m delighted.”
The 27-year-old has enjoyed an impressive campaign so far, being part of the North End side which opened the season with a record-breaking seven clean sheets.
He has also been recognised individually for his performances, having been named the EPIC Risk Management Man of the Match on four occasions already during the 2022/23 season.
Manager Ryan Lowe said: “Credit where credit’s due to Liam, he’s been fantastic and definitely earned a contract.
“The conversation we had earlier in the summer, in pre-season and even at the back end of last season was ’can he get himself in the team?’, and he’s certainly done that, and he’s been immense.
“One thing I will say about Liam is he’s taken on instructions with everything we’ve asked him to do.
“He’s been solid as a rock in front of Freddie [Woodman] along with the rest of the defenders when they’ve played, and it's fully deserved.
“I’m over the moon he’s signed a new, extended contract.”
