Preston North End have released a statement after images appeared to show a woman taking Jermaine Beckford's shirt from a child after the League One Play Off on Sunday.
The club say they will provide a shirt signed by Beckford to the child.
The statement in full said:
"The Club are fully aware of an incident in Sunday’s Play-Off Final win over Swindon Town involving Jermaine Beckford’s match shirt.
The Club have been in consultation with the Football League and the parents of the child who is alleged to have had the shirt taken from him as seen on television cameras covering the match.
Please note, no one involved in this situation is connected with Preston North End in any way, shape or form.
The people seated in the area of the incident attended the Play-Off Final as part of the League One Football League Kids’ Cup Final which was played earlier in the day.
We are delighted to say that Jermaine is more than happy to sign and present the child involved with his spare match shirt from the game.
The Club will also provide a stadium tour for the youngster.
If the shirt that Jermaine wore is returned to us, we will of course present this to the child in question instead.
The Club will not be commenting further on the matter at this time and would like the focus returned to Sunday’s fantastic achievement and building towards what will be an exciting season in the Championship."

Preston North End and Chesterfield have both been charged by the Football Association after their League One play-off match last week.
It's over allegations that in or around the 28th minute of the fixture, the clubs failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.
Preston assistant manager Glynn Snodin has been charged for misconduct over allegations his behaviour during the first half of the match amounted to improper conduct.
Both clubs and Mr Snodin have until 6pm on 15 May 2015 to respond to the charges.
Preston North End continue their bid for promotion to the Championship away at Chesterfield.
They're hoping it'll be tenth time lucky, having failed to go up from the previous nine play offs they've been involved in.
The manager and players insist that poor record won't have a negative impact on their push for promotion this season.
Full ticket details for Preston's Play-Off semi-final versus Chesterfield have been released.
The first leg will take place at Chesterfield's Proact Stadium on Thursday 7th May at 7.45pm and the Lilywhites have been allocated 2,000 seats in the North Stand.
Tickets are priced £20 for adults (19 to 64-years-old), £13 for senior citizens (65 and over) and 15 to 18-year-olds and £9 for 14-year-olds and under
The second leg will take place at Deepdale on Sunday 10th May with a 12.15pm kick-off.
The price for tickets for the home leg have been set at £20 for adults, £12 for senior citizens (60 and over for Ambassadors, 65 and over for all other supporters), young adults 16 to 18-year-olds and full-time students and £5 for U16s in all stands, with one third of the Bill Shankly Kop again open for home supporters.
With just two games to go in League One, Preston have their promotion fate in their own hands.
Victory in both their remaining matches will see them finish as runners up and seal a return to Championship.
But as David Chisnall reports, they won't have to wait until the end of the season for their promotion party, if results go their way this weekend.
