According to the Lancashire Evening Post, Preston North End are yet to offer a new contract to defender Darnell Fisher.
It’s stated that new terms have yet to be presented to Fisher, who is out of contract at the end of the season.
Ben Davies, Ben Pearson, Alan Browne and Daniel Johnson have all been offered new deals as has Paul Huntington, but Fisher hasn’t.
Fisher, 26, has been a key player for Preston ever since becoming Alex Neil’s first signing as North End boss in 2017, arriving in a bargain move from Rotherham United.
Fisher now has more than 100 appearances for Preston and is clearly the best right back at the club, so why is there no deal on the table?

Come January 1st, Fisher will be able to negotiate a pre-contract agreement with a non-English club, allowing him to walk away for absolutely nothing.
Preston are also set to lose Davies, Pearson, Browne and Johnson as things stand, so simply allowing Fisher to leave seems like a strange decision.
Back in November, Neil told Lancs Live that he was sure the situation would be resolved with a new offer, but that doesn’t seem to have happened.
Preston are now in real danger of losing Fisher, and with Neil already worried about the strength of his squad, losing a key player for nothing would only exacerbate his frustration.
