Tom Bayliss became the club's fourth signing of the summer in 2019, joining on a four-year deal for an undisclosed fee from Coventry City.
Bayliss, who came through the Academy at Coventry, is a highly-rated midfielder and North End fought off competition from a number of clubs to secure his signature.
In his first season as professional with the Sky Blues, Bayliss made 30 starts and he helped Coventry win promotion to League One. He then went on to make 41 appearances the following year during the 2018/19 League One campaign.
He was eased into first team action over the course of his first two seasons at Deepdale, and he scored his maiden goal for the club on the final day of the 2020/21 campaign in an away victory against Nottingham Forest.
On 27th August, the midfielder was loaned out to League One side Wigan Athletic for the rest of the 2021/22 season.
