Jordan Hugill: Preston North End sign Port Vale striker
Preston North End have signed striker Jordan Hugill from League One rivals Port Vale for an undisclosed fee.
The 22-year-old, who rejected the offer of a new contract with the Valiants earlier this month, has joined the Lilywhites on a two-year deal.
Hugill scored five goals - four as a substitute - in his only season with Port Vale after arriving from non-league Marske United.
He also netted five goals in seven games on loan at Gateshead.
"He's not a household name, but what he is, he's going to be competition for the squad," Preston manager Simon Grayson told the club website.
"He's young, he's raring to go, hungry, he's a strong, powerful player, and he's got many attributes that will help us along the way this season and complement the squad well."
