ROBBIE Brady is training with Championship club Preston North End, according to Lancashire Live.

The 30-year-old's contract with Cherries is set to officially expire today, making him available as a free agent.

The Republic of Ireland joined Cherries in October, but injuries hampered his game-time.

He ended the campaign having made seven appearances for the Dorset club.

Earlier this month, six more Championship clubs, including Brady's former employers Hull City and Norwich City, were linked with a move for the midfielder.

And Lancashire Live now report Preston too are "casting their eye" over the ex-Burnley man.

Ryan Lowe's Lilywhites have already signed one of Cherries' cast of 2022 this summer, in goalkeeper Freddie Woodman.

Cherries had the option to extend Brady's contract by a further year, but they appear to have declined that chance.

When Cherries announced their retained list in May, the club's statement read: "Discussions remain ongoing between Republic of Ireland international Robbie Brady and the club."
