Republic of Ireland striker Seanie Maguire has signed a new three-year deal with Preston North End even though he had two years still to run on his last contract.

The 24-year-old joined from Cork City last year and has been a revelation for manager Alex Neil scoring 10 goals in 24 appearances.

The deal will keep Maguire at Deepdale until the summer of 2021.

Speaking about the extension, the forward said: “I have improved a lot since I signed for Preston North End and that’s what I want to continue doing and I think the gaffer has played a huge part in that.

“I have come on leaps and bounds since I started my first campaign last August and I want to continue improving and there is no better club to do that with than Preston North End.

“We set the bar last season, finishing seventh and we want to take this club to the top tier and I think next season we need to push on.”
