Preston North End completed the signing of Graham Burke in June 2018, agreeing a four-year-deal.

Burke also started his career in England, progressing through the Aston Villa academy, alongside North End teammates Callum Robinson and Daniel Johnson. Burke left the Villans on loan to Shrewsbury and Notts County before joining the latter on a permanent basis.

The forward, who is can play across the front line, made over 40 appearances for the Magpies in two seasons with the club before returning home to Dublin with the Hoops.

In the March before his move to PR1, Burke scored four goals in a game against Derry City, the first time the feat had been accomplished by a Rovers player in over 25 years.

Burke made his full senior international debut for Republic of Ireland against France prior to his move to Deepdale, and scored his first international goal in the 2-1 win over USA in Dublin on 2nd June 2018.
