Preston were linked with signing Otis Khan, he's still a free agent

Back in March, Football League World reported that Preston North End were rivalling Sunderland for the signing of Otis Khan.

The former Manchester United talent had converted from a winger to a full back last season, showing some promise in that role.

Quick and forward-thinking, Khan could have made sense as a right wing back for North End.

Preston instead signed Matthew Olosunde on a free transfer from Rotherham United, and we’ve barely seen the American in action.

So what is Khan up to now?

Remarkably, the 26-year-old doesn’t even have a club.

It now seems that no other clubs were willing to swoop in and sign Khan, and he remains a free agent.

That no League Two or League One have signed Khan maybe suggests that he wouldn’t have made the grade at Preston anyway.

With Joe Raffetty now added to the squad and Olosunde on his way back from injury, the door for Khan to join North End is surely closed.

Let’s see if Khan can get himself a club in the near future, as it seems strange that he was linked with a Championship move but in mid-October, still doesn’t have a club.
