Preston North End are delighted to confirm Greg Cunningham has signed a new contract with the club.
The left-sided defender, who is continuing his rehabilitation from the hamstring injury he suffered in March, has signed a short-term deal to keep him at Deepdale until 31st December 2023.
Within Greg’s contract are clauses which will trigger an extension to the deal until 30th June 2024, depending on his fitness and availability.
After signing, Greg said: “I’m delighted. I’ve said it time and time again, I feel at home here.
“It’s where I’ve enjoyed my football the most and I’m happy that the journey continues with this club.
“I’d been enjoying my football and everything before the injury, so I’m very happy to be here and extend my stay.
“I feel strong. I’m getting fitter now, I’ve been in the last few days and I’ve been in a couple of weeks before everyone else just to finalise the latter stages and be ready to go for pre-season day one.
“I feel like I’ll be ready to go. Everything’s gone very well over the summer rehab wise.”
The 32-year-old has featured 172 times in a North End shirt since his arrival in Lancashire in 2015 from Bristol City.
He spent three years with the club in that first stint before earning a permanent move to the Premier League with Cardiff City.
Greg then rejoined PNE in January 2021, initially on loan, before the Irishman’s deal was made permanent, and he went on to make 24 appearances for the club during the 2022/23 season.
Manager Ryan Lowe added: “Greg’s obviously been brilliant for the club during two spells.
“He was unfortunate to get injured because he was playing good football, but he’s got himself a short-term deal now and a chance to earn a longer deal, so we’re really pleased he’s signed the contract.
“He had a good run of games in the team last season and did fantastically well. The injury was really disappointing because he was in good form and we want to get him back into that form.
“We want to get him back into the squad and performing the way we know he can.”
