Declan Rudd finalised his return to Deepdale on 20th June 2017 signing a three-year deal, having agreed an undisclosed fee with Norwich City.
Rudd had been at Norwich all his footballing life but had loan spells away from Carrow Road and chose Deepdale as his new permanent home.
The former England U21 international had already spent 18 months at PNE across two seasons making 60 appearances.
Declan’s most recent loan move before his switch to North End was at Charlton where he made 38 appearances.
Upon his return to Deepdale Declan described PNE as ‘feeling like home’ to him.
In Rudd’s last season as a Lilywhite he was a part of a Play-Off semi-final campaign where the club finished fifth - after having his initial six-month loan deal extended to that season.
Declan made appearances for Norwich in the Premier League and saved a penalty on his full Premier League debut. He was also nominated for the Player of the Month award for his performances in the top-flight in 2015.
