Preston fans react as Louis Moult signs for Burton Albion

Louis Moult’s time at Preston North End came to an end this summer, after an injury ridden three-and-a-half years at the club.

Joining after a prolific spell in Scotland with Motherwell, Moult showed glimpses of what he was capable of, but unfortunately never established himself.

He did give the club some memorable moments, especially a winner against Nottingham Forest at The City Ground which sent the away end into exuberant celebrations back in December 2018.

He leaves Deepdale with the best wishes from Preston fans, in part due to his committed displays and also the great charitable work he did off the pitch during his time in Preston.

Moult has now secured his next club after signing a two-year deal with League One side Burton Albion. He joins Jayden Stockley in dropping down to League One, after the target man moved to Charlton earlier in the week, but you would expect both to have a strong season at that level.

The former Stoke City striker will now be managed by ex-Netherlands international striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink. The Premier League legend certainly knew how to find the net during his playing career. He scored 127 goals in the top flight and twice won the Golden Boot.

The former Leeds United and Chelsea striker will be able to lend his knowledge to Louis Moult who will hope to find his goal scoring boots again. Hasselbaink is in his second spell at Burton Albion and guided them to safety this year following a great end of season run.

Preston fans were quick to wish Louis Moult good luck with his new club, just as they had done with Stockley a few days earlier.
