Preston North End are delighted to confirm Calvin Ramsay will join the club on a season-long loan from Liverpool.
The right-sided defender came through the ranks at Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen and went on to join the Reds in June 2022.
Ramsay – a Scotland international – becomes North End’s first new arrival of the summer and will officially join the club on 15th July 2023.
Calvin said: “I’m delighted to join Preston North End. The Championship is a top league as everyone knows and the main thing for me is trying to get game time, and I’m going to be able to do that at a good club. I can’t wait to get started.
“I’m happy to be getting the opportunity to get regular game time in a good league, which is important for me. I just need to work hard and try to play as many games as I can.
“There were quite a few clubs interested, but when I spoke to the manager (Ryan Lowe), everything that he said was spot on. The way the team plays, they like to play attacking football, keep the ball and get forward.
"I think that suits my game because I can score and assist goals, and I like getting at people. Ultimately Preston suited me the best."
The 19-year-old made his senior bow for Aberdeen in March 2021 and went on to make 39 appearances for the Dons.
Ramsay was named as the Young Player of the Year by the Scottish Football Writers’ Association for the 2021/22 campaign – his first full season in professional football.
He then signed a long-term deal with Premier League side Liverpool in June 2022 and has since featured twice for the Merseyside club, including an appearance in the Champions League.
Manager Ryan Lowe said: “I’m really pleased we’ve managed to get Calvin through the door on a season-long loan.
“He fills a position we’ve been looking to fill for a while as it gives us good competition down that right-hand side where Brad Potts has obviously been fantastic.
“It gives us options now, too. We’ve got a right back in the building as well as someone who can play right wing back.
“He’s energetic, he’s dynamic, and he can get himself up and down the pitch.
“Liverpool obviously invested a lot of money in him after he came through at Aberdeen so we know the quality he’s got.”
