The 24-year-old has signed a four-and-a-half year deal at Deepdale, with the Lilywhites paying £150,000 for his services.

North End chairman Derek Shaw said: "Brian Stock flew up from Southampton on Friday evening and arrived in Preston around 8pm. He immediately had a medical, which he passed, while Billy Davies and myself were in negotiations with his representative.

"We have added a quality midfield player to the squad. Brian has an excellent football brain and we are looking forward to working with him."
