Freddie Woodman joined from Newcastle United in the summer of 2022 on a three-year deal.

The 25-year-old had signed for the Magpies aged 16 – after coming through the Crystal Palace ranks – and went on to make nine first team appearances for the Tyneside club.

He spent most of his contracted time with Newcastle away from St James’ Park though, being sent out on many loan deals.

The most successful of these was a two-year stint with Swansea City, reaching the Play-Offs on both occasions, with the second ending in defeat at Wembley.

Woodman was also a regular international at youth level, making 56 appearances across six different age groups, and received the Golden Glove at the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup in which England were victorious.

He will be hoping to settle in at Deepdale and become the first choice for years to come.
