Former Partick Thistle defender Liam Lindsay has switched clubs, leaving Stoke City for Preston North End on a permanent basis.
Lindsay spent six months on loan at Preston from Stoke City last season but now makes the switch across the English Championship on a permanent basis. The centre-back started his career with Thistle before moving to England with Barnsley in 2017, where he spent two years before moving to Stoke.
Now moving closer to home at Preston, Lindsay said of the move: “I’m delighted and just happy it’s been done so quickly as well. I always wanted to come back here and I’m just looking forward to the season ahead. I got a good feeling as soon as I came really – the players, staff, just everyone about really.
“I’ve enjoyed my time so much over the last six months, and I’m delighted to come back. [When I signed] on deadline day, it was a bit hectic, so it’s better to get it done on the first day rather than the last now. It gives me a bit of clarity and a bit of stability as well, so I’m just happy to get it done.”
