Preston have confirmed the signing of defender David Buchanan from Tranmere on a two-year deal.

Buchanan is a free agent having rejected a new deal with Rovers and will join the club on July 1.

The 26-year-old had been on the verge of agreeing a new deal at Prenton Park before Preston approached him, and joins former Tranmere skipper John Welsh at Deepdale as Graham Westley rebuilds for next season.

Chairman Peter Ridsdale said: "Our quiet progress in bringing in the players we have targeted is continuing.

"We are delighted to be able to announce David as our latest acquisition.

"His end of season awards at Tranmere illustrate the qualities we are getting and we look forward to him joining us."
