Paul Gallagher has returned to Deepdale for the 2014/15 season, signing a season long loan deal with the Club from Leicester City.

It will be Gallagher’s third spell as a Preston player. In 2007 he scored once in 19 appearances for the Club.

The forward was a key part of the Lilywhites’ squad following his arrival on loan in October 2013, scoring a hat-trick in his second appearance against Barnet in the FA Cup.

Manager Simon Grayson said: “He made it very clear to us that he wanted to come back and after negotiations with Leicester City it is a done deal for the season.

“We are grateful to Leicester for letting him come here.”
