Preston are hopeful of agreeing a new contract with goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann ahead of next season.
The German's current deal runs out next month and negotiations have been taking place over fresh terms.
North End boss Simon Grayson told the Lancashire Evening Post: "We have spoken to Thorsten and there are one or two things which need tweaking.
"But we are not a million miles away and hopefully there will be something to report quite soon."
Stuckmann, 32, joined Preston as a free agent on a short-term contract in November 2011 before earning an extended deal.
