Norwich City goalkeeper Declan Rudd will complete his move to Preston North End next week.

According to The Lancashire Evening Post, Rudd will have his medical and officially become a Preston player after this week.

Since then, Preston have ironed out a deal with Norwich, thought to be in the region of £500k.

Preston are now waiting for Rudd to return from his summer holidays so that he can complete his medical and sign over the dotted line.
