Wright joins Deepdale with considerable pedigree having played for England, Arsenal, Everton and Ipswich.

"I spoke to the manager and the chairman and the club wants to go forward," Wright told the club's official website.

"You can see the signs of the amount of signings that have come in that I wanted to be part of a team that's going to be winning things."

"I didn't want to come there just to carry on my career, I wanted to carry on winning.

"I've been fortunate enough to win things in the past and I want to win things in the future. I want to be on that pitch playing week in, week out and make sure that we get Preston back up to where they belong."

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
