Sepp van den Berg is quickly becoming a favourite at Preston.
The Dutchman joined North End on loan in February, arriving as part of the deal that saw Ben Davies join Liverpool.
Given that Jurgen Klopp barely even considered Van den Berg during his centre back crisis, some were concerned that the 19-year-old wouldn’t quite be up to scratch in the Championship.
However, Van den Berg has been a pleasant surprise. Despite being a centre back by trade, he has thrived at right back and even right wing back.
The 19-year-old has been so good that other clubs, even one targeting promotion to the Premier League, are keen on signing Van den Berg according to The Athletic.
Preston do have first refusal on Van den Berg if they want him back next season, and he has now been hailed by teammate Greg Cunningham.
Cunningham, who also joined North End in the January window, has told Lancs Live that he thinks Van den Berg has been ‘phenomenal’ for North End.
Cunningham branded the Dutchman ‘a breath of fresh air’, and can’t speak highly enough of the Liverpool man as he continues to make major strides at Deepdale.
