Report: Preston again target Sheffield Wednesday's Josh Windass

According to Sky Sports, Preston are once again in the race to sign Sheffield Wednesday forward Josh Windass this summer.

Windass has become one of ‘those’ names regularly linked with North End, and the interest seemingly goes back years.

Alex Neil wanted to bring Windass to Preston in January 2018, failing with a £500,000 bid when Windass was playing with Rangers.

Looking Back At OUR Euro 2020 Predictions

Last summer, Wigan Today reported that Preston had made a bid for Windass, and it was accepted – but he ended up at Sheffield Wednesday instead.

The 27-year-old hit nine goals and five assists in 41 Championship games last season, featuring mostly as a striker.

Windass does though have versatility to play out wide or as a number 10, and his pace could be a real asset alongside Ched Evans in attack.

Millwall are believed to be preparing a bid, whilst Birmingham City are also keen with Windass unlikely to stay at Wednesday and play in League One next season.

Windass would make sense for Preston as another goalscoring threat, but having missed out a few times in the past, we’re not pinning our hopes on this one.
