Davies extends Preston stay

Preston have confirmed that defender Ben Davies has signed a two-year contract extension.

The 18-year-old's new deal will keep him at Deepdale until the summer of 2016 and includes an option for a further 12 months.

Davies made his debut for North End in January 2013 against Coventry and spent last season on loan at League Two York.

He said: "I'm delighted to have extended my stay at Preston North End. It's a great club and I cannot wait to get back now for pre-season training."
