According to The Sun on Sunday (17/01, p59), Preston are interested in raiding Luton Town for defender Sonny Bradley.
It’s claimed that North End are looking to sign Bradley in a cut-price deal this month or for free at the end of the season, with his contract expiring this summer.
Bradley is allegedly seen as a potential replacement for Ben Davies, who looks set to leave Preston in the near future.
Bradley fits the bill as a left-footed defender who slot into the role Davies plays, but he is a much more experienced option at 29 years of age.
He’s also a huge presence; Bradley stands at a huge 6ft 5in tall, meaning he would provide a much taller option than Davies.
Bradley captains the Hatters, with Alex Neil potentially looking for more leaders in this Preston side having also signed Doncaster skipper Ben Whiteman.
Luton won’t want to lose their captain in the middle of the season, but Preston will hope to tempt them into a deal inside the final six months of his contract.
Bradley was born in Hull but has now spent many years in the south with Portsmouth, Crawley Town, Plymouth Argyle and now Luton, meaning a return to the north could be appealing.
