Defender Paul Huntington and midfielder Daniel Johnson have signed new contracts with Preston North End that will run until the summers of 2018 and 2019 respectively.

Huntington, 28, has 15 goals in 166 games for the club since moving to Deepdale from Yeovil in July 2012.

Johnson, 23, moved to North End from Aston Villa in January 2015 and has made 71 appearances, scoring 16 goals.

"It's nice that we've got these two sorted," boss Simon Grayson said.

He told the club website he hoped to add further extensions, saying: "It's all about making sure that you keep your best players.

"The players we have been talking to and the players that have signed were running into the last year of their contracts."
