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.

“It has been a difficult few days working in a situation where the club and I had no control over what has been said, but I am absolutely delighted to be able to commit my future to the club and to continue with the project we have been working on,” Neil told the club’s website.
“This is a fantastic football club and we have built a young squad that not only has great ability but has great potential to improve, and I thoroughly enjoy working with them and seeing them give everything to get better, every single day.”
