Sky Sports understands Preston have agreed a deal to sign former Swansea striker Lee Trundle.
Trundle has impressed on trial at Deepdale after being invited to join up with the club for pre-season training.
The 35-year-old has featured for North End in their pre-season friendlies against Southport and Chorley and he scored a superb solo goal in the draw against Chorley earlier this week.
North End boss Graham Westley has moved to offer the skilful forward a deal at Deepdale and Trundle is expected to sign a one-year contract in the next 24 hours.
Trundle arrives at Preston on a free transfer after leaving Neath following the club's winding up in May due to their financial problems.
