Alex Neill signs new Preston contract despite West Brom interest

Preston manager Alex Neil has signed a new three-year deal with the Championship club, it has been confirmed.

The 37-year-old arrived at Deepdale in July 2017, just under four months after leaving Norwich.

He led the club to a seventh place finish in his first season, and a run of eight wins from 12 unbeaten games had put the Lilywhites on course for a play-off place this term.

However, four straight defeats since then have left them eight points of the top six adrift with four matches remaining.

Neil had been linked with the vacant hot seat at West Brom and was pleased to end speculation by signing a new contract at Preston.
