Preston boss Ryan Lowe has explained how Premier League clubs had to be fended off to land goalkeeper Freddie Woodman. “He is [a serious buy] but I think it’s important we did that,” Lowe told LancsLive. “The noises coming from Preston fans and everyone else associated was that you lose Daniel Iversen and where do you go from there? It was one of my main priorities - to get a very good goalkeeper in and I’d been speaking to Freddie early on, when we had the chance to chat to him. It certainly helped with him being at the same agency as me I’m sure! It definitely did down the line, because it was a battle in itself with Premier League clubs on the phone to him when he was driving down here to sign. He told them no, that it was done and his mind and heart was set on it.” (LancsLive)
