P N E are a bit like e-bay now.They seem to be more interested in buying players to sell them on.The Preston fans must be the best in the world,they show such patience & understanding.It is obvious to me that players who come to Preston only do so if they can get a foolproof get out clause.That seems to include managers as well
No problems with a good man wanting to test himself against the best. I wish him all the very best because he always gives his best. I bet Lucketti is going to be as sick as a parrot because once again big claude will be keeping out of a side. Go with all our love and affection Claude.
I fully understand Claude's desire to play in the top flight, and would like to thank him for his time at PNE and wish him all the best for the future - PS yes we do still love you Claude - You're a star!

Claude has been a star for North End on and off the pitch and has left the club in the right manner with no threats, no badmouthing of the club and a touching message for the fans.
Of course it's a great shame to lose him but at 27 this is his last chance to get a Premiership deal so we need to be realistic.
I think it's safe to say that he would get a rousing reception should he return to play against us in the future.
One note of caution - We need to know what is meant by 'up to £3m'. I know we cant give all the details out but it would be good to know just how much PNE will get right now.
